The Limousin beef Label Rouge (obtained in 1988) corresponds to cows that are exclusively of the Limousin breed, and aged more than 28 months and less than 10 years. The cows are reared in a traditional manner, in accordance with nature’s cycles (alternating between grasslands and stables). Their basic foodstuff is grass and they spend a minimum of six months a year in pastures. A Label Rouge Limousin cow has a diet based on milk, grass, hay, cereals, forage and high-protein crops. Most of these products are produced on the farm, with the exception of the protein intake provided by oil meal, obtained from oil plant seeds such as soya bean, linseed, sunflower or rapeseed once the oil has been extracted.
The meat from Label Rouge Limousin cattle stands out for its beautiful red colour: it is a top-quality, lean meat, renowned for its taste. Its exceptional grain gives it a tenderness, remarkable marbling, smoothness and juiciness. Label Rouge Limousin beef is sold under the brand Blason Prestige in artisan butchers and in restaurants, and under the brand ‘Qualité Limousine’ in supermarkets. True professionals when it comes to quality, these butchers know to leave the meat to age, and how to prepare and cut it up.
