Suggested Sale Terms and Conditions

 

Current Fees

The NALF Board of Directors spent the bulk of its April 2016 meeting analyzing expense, revenue, fees, dues, services and structure for NALF. This review was not only comprehensive internally, but compared our operation and fee structure to other breed associations of similar size. We need to be on a level playing field to compete and promote Limousin to commercial and seedstock producers.

Effective September 1, 2016, registration fees increased $7 per head on each age category along with the LIMS program increasing $5 per head (from $15 to $20). Transfer fees increased $2.00 and $3.00 per head, respectively, on the under and over 60 days of age price categories.

While no one enjoys or wants to increase costs, the board knows it is imperative to offer the full range and quality of service and marketing to Limousin membership. Our pricing structure is at the average of other comparable breeds with this pricing increase.

Sennett Cattle also proudly raises breeding stock which are backed with an elite set of donor cows consisting of Lim-Flex, Angus, Simmental, Maine-Anjou, and Chianina females. Lance and family also feed out about 2000 head per year in a feedlot that was designed by Lance himself. Sennett Cattle was also awarded the Environmental Stewardship Award in 2008. As a fourth-generation farmer, he also as a grain operation.

Although Lance got his start showing Herefords, he has been no stranger to the Limousin world. His real passion began with the Limousin breed. As a past Secretary and President of the North American Limousin Foundation, he is looking forward to being back on the Board of Directors. Lance was also a past President and Vice President of the Indiana Beef Cattlemen’s Association, where the association awarded him the Young Cattlemen of Year in 2012.

Lance attended Western Kentucky University where he met his wife, Margaret. They have three daughters, which are now the fifth generation, Ellie, Emily, and Claire, where they are involved in the family operation and competitively show cattle on the national level.
