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 held the International Limousin Congress in Colorado.
The 23rd International Limousin Congress (ILC) came to an end at the Antlers Hotel, Colorado Springs, Colo. on July 27, 2018. The guests had the day on their own to do some more exploring. Some stayed close to the hotel and had more of a lazy day, while others got out and explored the mountains.
The closing ceremony took place at the Antlers Hotel, Colorado Springs, Colo. The North American Limousin Foundation expresses their sincerest thank you to our sponsors, Alltech and Neogen GeenSeek, whom without, this would have not been possible. Thank you to our host ranches, Magness Land & Cattle, Oschner Limousin, Fillmore Ranch, and Running Creek Ranch, for allowing the ILC attendees to come and tour your places. Thank you to the ladies of Unbridled who have been working on making things run smoothly and who did a fantastic job of organizing and planning. Most of all, thank you to all the attendees who took time out of their busy schedules to come and see what the Limousin breed is doing here in America. It was a fabulous ten days! We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in France in 2020 for the 24th International Limousin Congress.
