2004 International Limousin Congress
1st to 14th August


Come and find out first hand why in Britain the Limousin breed is the complete cattle breed.

Just over 30 years ago there were no Limousin cattle in Britain.

Earlier this year, official figures confirmed that Limousin is now the most popular British cattle sire, beef or dairy.

How has this happened? Well, you are of course welcome to find out for yourself anytime, but what better time could there be than the International Limousin Congress to be held in Britain in the summer of 2004, where you can see first hand the reasons behind this remarkable Limousin domination.

See the breed in action in mid England and North Wales before settling in Stratford-Upon-Avon, home of William Shakespeare and venue for the Technical Conference itself.

The English Royal Show is held just a few miles away; at Stoneleigh, and you will go to the first day of this spectacular show, to watch the Limousin judging and soak up the atmosphere of this Royal event, which has something for everybody.


The pre-Conference Tour will start in Scotland, where you will visit top commercial and pedigree herds, set in scenic and historic locations, including Stirling made famous by the film Braveheart, based on Stirling's local hero - William Wallace.

In addition you will visit Edinburgh, the vibrant capital city brimming with history and charm, and spend some time at the Royal Highland Show, Scotland's premier agricultural show which attracts around one
hundred and fifty thousand visitors over four days.

It is the working ability of the Limousin crossbreds to live, thrive and produce in all types of British terrain, which have taken the breed to the top spot in British beef production. Come with us across the rugged Scottish/English border to visit working herds in the counties of Northumberland and Cumbria and to take in a premier sale at Carlisle, the main British sale centre for Limousins.

A project herd at Lackham College in Wiltshire and Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, who of course, run an impressive pedigree and commercial Limousin herd, will both be part of the visit.
