Maas (ID 6634) is a strong bloke, brownish red and very easy going. He is a bull of the Limousin race, a breed used for meat production. Maas and his beautiful women eat their juicy grass in the rural area around Bedum (Groningen, The Netherlands). Maas is a cautious bull, protecting his women with a suspicious look in his eyes.
Limousin cattle are a breed of highly muscled beef cattle originating from the Limousin and Marche regions of France. Limousins were first exported from France in significant numbers in the 1960s and are now present in about 70 countries. They are naturally horned and have a distinctive lighter wheat to darker golden-red colouring, although international breeders have now bred polled (do not have horns) and black Limousins.
Limousins have become popular because of their low birth weights (ease of calving), higher than average dressing percentage (ratio of carcase to live weight) and yield (ratio of meat to carcase), high feed conversion efficiency, and their ability to produce lean, tender meat. A major multi-breed study reported that Limousins converted feed into saleable meat more efficiently and significantly faster than popular British breeds, and marginally faster than other popular continental European cattle breeds.
