RAVantage

Why Raven?

Grown under commercial conditions and performance recorded to ensure data backs up quality, a Raven bull comes well grown & docility tested. Raven bulls are all DNA evaluated for pesti virus, polled status, coat colour and fertility tested.

 

Raven Limousin offers the option of pure Limousin bulls for beef producer looking for a terminal sire that delivers a full dose of muscle to their calf crop as well as registered black composites - Lim-Flex50 (50/50 Limo/Angus) and Lim-Flex75 (75/25 Limo/Angus). Both designer Lim-Flex’s give the beef producers the benefits of hybrid vigour (heterosis) through added weight gain and yield in their steer turn-off, along with the benefits of maternal heterosis in the Lim-Flex sired replacement females. Maternal heterosis will provide an increased gain in fertility, milking ability and longevity in your herd, giving you an easy care, profitable cow herd.

 

Example: Using Lim-Flex50 bulls over a commercial Angus herd will produce steers and replacement females that will have 25% Limousin infusion offering saleable stock to many markets (including some premium Angus markets) as well as easy care replacement females that will have the performance edge over pure-bred herds.
