Customer Testimonials


Mark Leonard
Leonard Limousin and Angus

"I most certainly will be testing our bulls here for as long as I am in the purebred business."

"We have tested our bulls with Craig Hays and Joe Werner for 15 years collecting daily feed intake, cost of gain, feed conversion, average daily gain, carcass scans and yearling weights. The bulls have always come off the test properly conditioned and obviously well cared for. I most certainly will be testing our bulls there for as long as I am in the purebred business.

The data gathered related to feed conversion and cost of gain is nearly the most important information we learn about our cattle and breeding program. Being a live is the most important factor determining profit in a beef animal, but the 2nd most critical is cost of feed during the animal’s life. Feed conversion has become a major component of our selection process as we choose our herd sires. But additionally, feed conversion data incorporated into our pricing formula for our private treaty bull sales counts for more than any other single component of the pricing. Leonard Limousin & Angus is the longest established and continuously operating Limousin program in the USA selling large numbers of bulls and breeding stock to buyers in more than 40 states and 23 nations."
