We have a small "farm" in Central Ga. We have a small herd of registered Limousin cattle that we raise for show, breeding and sale. We got started in it about 5 1/2 years ago when our daughters were still in school. They showed for FFA and 4-H. They did pretty good. Now they only show open shows when they have time. We are lifetime members with NALF and members of the Ga. Limousin Association. The youngest daughter is a member of the Ga. Cattlemans Assoc. but when it time to renew membership, it will be under the farm name as she is no longer considered a junior member. We sold our herd bull back in March and hopefully replace him with one of the bull calves that were born this year.

We also have horses, mostly reg. QH, 2 reg. paints, 2 grade and an unreg. TB mare.

We have about 10 reg. cows, 2 of which are red. Six of those have calves at their side. Out of 6 that have been born since the 1st of Aug. only one is a heifer. One of the calves is homozygous black.

I will post some pictures soon.

The ag teacher at the high school my girls went to raises beefmasters. They are nice. He didn't show them tho. We have lots of dairy farms around here. Eatonton, Ga, Putnam Co. , is the biggest dairy farm area in Ga.
