Sheep rearing in the Limousin goes all the way back to when Man became a farmer and breeder during the Neolithic age.
Over time, everything was done to improve sheep farming in the Limousin, with, in particular, tax controller Turgot in the 18th century who offered rewards for killing wolves and
who introduced new sheep breeds.
The Limousin lamb is now reared over all three departements in the Limousin region: the Corrèze, Creuse and the Haute-Vienne. The industry has more than 1,000 breeders to its name.
The Limousin lamb has had a Protected Geographical Indication (P.G.I.) since 2000, guaranteeing its origin and specific breeding methods.
