In 1981 the definitive blood percentages were established: 3/8 Limousin, 5/8 Aberdeen Angus. This new breed was called Limangus. It was defined as hornless, black or red, with open pedigree through mothers under the Association inspection. The first breed created in Argentina was born.
Even though the Angus-Limousin cross is very developed in countries such as Australia, USA, Canada, UK to produce high yield steers, the breed was only ( stabilized in Argentina. We consider we can work on the cross to increase the meat production of our animals. And after 40 years of selection we can say that the Limousin factor gives superior muscles in the back, were the high price cuts are, and the Angus factor the rusticity, low birth weight and low maintenance.
