LIMS stand for Limousin Inventory Management System. It is a total herd reporting program which allows members to lower their costs of doing business with NALF while contributing more complete and comprehensive productivity information to help position the Limousin breed for future improvements.
For questions or more information on the LIMS program, contact Brittany Barrick, NALF director of registry and performance, at 303-220-1693, ext. 57, or email Brittany.
LIMS provides members and NALF a number of benefits – from the incentive to capture unbiased, complete performance and reproductive information for more reliable genetic predictions to a simplified and often lower cost way of conducting business for members.
LIMS is an optional program. By choosing to participate in LIMS, members pay an annual fee per active cow and, in turn, are entitled to register that cow’s current year calf, complete one transfer, and record performance data, all free of charge.
There are several easy specifications members need to follow to participate in the LIMS program. These specifications are outlined in the LIMS Policies below.
LIMS has two calendars for Spring Calving Cows (January 1 through May 31) and Fall Calving Cows (Jun1 through December 31). Review the LIMS Calendar below for important dates and deadlines.
Members can enroll in the LIMS program via their Member Site on the NALF-DigitalBeef Platform. Use the written guide below for step-by-step instructions and tips.
