Welcome to Venner Limousin

For over a hundred years cattle have roamed the yards and fields of the Venner Farms located in the fertile, rolling hills of western Iowa.  Now in the fifth generation of cattle rearing, emphasis has shifted in recent years to a registered cow-calf herd rather than feeding market ready animals, although that is still a part of the operation.    .  

In 1979 Jim and Becky ventured into the beef seedstock industry with the purchase of a few Limousin females as several dispersal sales. Over the years Venner Limousin has developed into a reliable source for heavy muscled, user friendly beef bulls. Bulls and females are merchandised at several Midwestern consignment sale as as well as off the farm. With our focus on superior quality, we can fulfill your needs.

Please stop by our stalls at the Sioux Empire Livestock Show and
Black Hills Stock Show.

Or better yet, stop by the farm and preview our bulls, we have a great set of bulls for sale at private treaty. The coffee pot is always on (or can be quickly). Just give Jim a call at 712-830-8381 or Becky at 712-830-8380.

Champion and High Selling Limousin Bull

(2nd over all breeds)

Sioux Empire Livestock Show

Thanks to Dale McLellan, McLellan Ranches, Lantree, SD for purchasing this popular young sire.

JBV Optics 106H is one of the first JBV Yellowstone 901G sons to be offered for sale. Deep sided and long spined, this easy moving herd sire prospect is big nutted and as quiet as they come. Out of a super JBV Nite Watchman daughter that goes back to the accomplished Sennett 010X cow of Linhart’s, JBV Optics has every EPD in the top half of the breed with birth and performance numbers in the top third. Built in predictability as well as a great look makes him a bonafide herd sire candidate.

A big tip of the hat too Randy Sessions of Morgan, Utah for his selection of JBV Catalyst making him the third high selling bull over all breeds at the Sioux Empire Livestock Show

Good cattlemen will tell you that weight comes from long bodied animals and JBV Catalyst 105H certainly has that. Double homozygous, this dude will add pounds to your calf crop. The JBV Yellowstone 901G sons have really impressed us with their growth, muscle and temperament and Catalyst fits that mold to a T. He’s one you will want in your pastures.

******************************************************************************************************

This is the guy we’ve been excited about ever since his birth. JBV Epic 023H has all the attributes that has made the Limousin breed a factor in the beef industry. Deep ribbed, huge topped and smooth walking, this homozygous polled youngster has herd bull written all over him. Out of a proven cow, he has the style to be champion at the Iowa State Fair but more importantly, he has the power and performance to be a factor in today’s beef industry through his progeny.

******************************************************************************************************

Good red purebred bulls are hard to find but we think we’re bringing a good one to town here. JBV Springsteen 101H has the look and performance needed in today’s industry. Add pedigree predictability, his dam is JBV Yellowstone’s granddam, and a great phenotype adds up to opportunity. The “Boss” is a huge success in the entertainment business, we feel JBV Springsteen can do the same in the beef industry.
