About NALF

The International Limousin Council is the global organization for Limousin Associations around the world. The main purpose and objectives of the ILC are to network with the world’s elite Limousin breeders while coordinating international research efforts; encouraging uniform recording and registration policies; and to highlight and honor efforts that have been made for the benefit of the Limousin breed on an international and domestic level.

Every two years, the International Limousin Congress (ILC) is hosted by a different country. This event first took place in 1973 in France and has been going strong ever since. The ILC event has traveled to numerous countries including: France, USA, Argentina, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Zimbabwe, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, and Canada.

The International Limousin Congress prides itself on being an event that not only serves as an opportunity to exchange industry and research knowledge, but also a memorable experience that will leave you captivated with a new culture and heading home with lasting friendships.

July 19-27, 2018, the North American Limousin Foundation will hold the International Limousin Congress in Colorado.
