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 Alison Jones, NALF director of DNA processing & accounting operations, at 303-220-1693, ext. 59, or email Alison.
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.
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.
