2016 International Year Code is D


Each year NALF honors a Commercial Producer of the Year, a Commercial Marketing Booster of the Year, and a Limousin Promoter of the Year. These awards are presented at the National Western Stock Show. NALF is currently seeking nominations for this year’s awards. Nominations are due December 7. Nomination forms may be found under the Member Center of the Management tab at NALF.org or may be requested from the NALF office at 303-220-1693 or Limousin@NALF.org.


LAST CHANCE! You must order your show vest today in order to have it for NWSS. Vests WILL be required in the Open Limousin Show. If you do not have a new black one you must wear your old red one. New vests WILL NOT be on hand at the show. The new vests are a black soft shell with the Limousin logo on the chest. You may order using this form.


 With the holiday season fast approaching, breeders are reminded to submit DNA testing requests as soon as possible. The holidays can cause delays in DNA processing as the lab, mail providers, and NALF office all close down for various days in December. This is also a busy time for both NALF and the lab. Submit your DNA tests today and avoid these delays.

When submitting DNA samples on hair and blood cards, make sure those cards contain a barcode. NALF will not accept DNA submitted on cards that do not contain a bar code. It has come to our attention that AGI is no longer including barcodes on their hair and blood cards. NALF will not accept these as a barcode is REQUIRED. All samples submitted on hair or blood cards must contain a barcode. Members may request barcoded supplies through the DNA screen on their Member Site or by contacting the NALF office.

DNA Turnaround: 3 weeks
