Beefmaker 116D

The highest performance active bull in the breed today. He carries a YWT EPD of 164. He has NALF Limousin percentage of 93%. You will not find a high percentage Limousin bull with semen available with a higher YWT EPD. As data on his first calf crop has been completed, his EPD for all profit traits has gotten even better. He is the only bull in the breed in top 1% for WWT, YWT, TM, SC, CW, and REA. When it comes to profitability – Beefmaker reigns supreme. Domestic and exportable semen is available.

Jock 9w

For several years, Jock 9W was the only purebred bull to have BWT EPD below 2.5 and YWT EPD over 130. He will also improve your cow herd milking ability. But the most amazing factor of all is the feed conversion.

Jock himself had individual feed conversion while on test of 3.2 lbs. of feed per pound of gain. He breeds it in his calves with his sons being the #1 feed conversion sire group 7 years running in independent feed conversion trials compared to well over 1000 other bulls every year. Of all the sires we’ve used over the years, only Beefmaker 116D calves have beat Jock’s sons for performance. Very limited semen is still available, but we will share some with our friends.

Red Dirt 118y

This massive made homozygous herd sire makes calves that look like Limousin. Great bone, body depth and overall mass. He is a great balance bull who does everything well and no holes in him. Semen available for domestic use only.

LLR Commodore WJ629

He is just a yearling, but is slated to be a major herd sire for us.  This son of Beefmaker out of a Jock daughter is double polled and double black. That’s nice, but he is an amazing performance animal.

With a 205 wt of 824 and 365 wt of 1447 he comes in with 122 ratio for weaning and 109 ratio for yearling. He also was our #2 bull for feed conversion of the 2019 calf crop at 4.96. He popped a 21.9 REA at 12 mos and IMF of 3.2 to give him an overall NALF carcass Index Value of 50.47 (top 4% of the breed). 

He is in top 1% of all Limousin cattle for WWT, YWT, TM, CW, REA and top 2% for MK and SC.  There is not a better balanced, deeper sided, heavy muscled bull in the breed today that we know of. 

Semen will be available for use in the Spring 2021.  EPD:Bwt  3.5  WWt    87  YWT  143  MK  29  TM  72  SC  1.38     His registration # is NPM2266480 – look him up to see his full EPD profile and pedigree.

Sooner JR

Without a question it was Sooner JR that put Leonard Limousin on the map. His first set of sons shown in the National Western Pen and Carload show were the talk of the yards due to their unprecedented performance and muscle shape in 1979. We still breed a few cows to him every year even though he is horned, but his daughters make such valuable cows that we always want to have some on hand and the fact is, he’s a fullblood. We think too many breeders are diluting the percentage of Limousin in their cowherds and we want to avoid doing the same.  Semen is available for domestic use.

He was the high selling bull out of the yards at the 1990 Nat’l Western pen and carload show at $20,000. This son of Packleader had all the performance you’d expect (he is the only animal we’ve raised with a 1,000 lb 205 wt). He sired several champion steers in Oklahoma and Texas in the ensuing years and then spent his last 4 years servicing cows in the pastures at Leonard Limousin. He was a massive, heavy muscled bull and weighed in near 3000 lbs. at his peak. Semen is available for domestic use.

Wulf's Apostle T343A

As the high seller of Wulf’s sale in 2014 at $60,000, Leonard’s were proud to be a part of the group making the purchase. Expectations were that he would be a moderating source for birth wts and offer great function in the females. He has succeeded in meeting those goals with daughters that are super quiet, big bodied, good footed cows with great fertility and udder quality. He is homozygous polled and one of those red bulls who breeds pretty consistently. Semen is available through Grass Roots and Limi-Gene.

Argonne

The outstanding son of Red Dirt is Argonne.  He carries 2 copies of the F94L gene, is homozygous polled and loaded with muscle.  He puts a huge rib eye on his calves and his daughters calve with ease.  They have such beautiful correct udders they are a sight to behold.  He is especially strong on early growth and his calves will reach most of their mature frame size by yearling time.  At weaning time they are an easily identifiable sire group due to their extra muscle and mass.  Argonne was our top performing and top feed efficiency bull in his calf crop and is pictured at just 15 mos of age.  If looking for all polled, heavy muscled red calves with superb disposition then you want to use Argonne. Semen is available for domestic use.
