How tall are Limousin cows?
Limousin cows tend to have a height between 5 to 7 feet at the shoulder at adult maturity.
Limousin cattle originated from France, specifically from the Limousin and Marche regions. Locally, though, Limousin cattle come from other Limousin cattle, specifically cows and bulls that are of the Limousin breed.
A Limousin cow can be expected to produce as much as 10 to 20 lbs of milk per day.
Yes, they have a high quality meat.
Limousins are a large beef breed. Cows can stand over 6 feet in height at the shoulder, and weigh from 1400 to 1800 lbs.
the norm for a full grown limousin cow is between 1,000 to 1,800 pounds.
It would most likely be a charcoal or grey colour.
Well if you mean the now extinct horse breed it used to weight around 1000 to 1400 pounds. If you mean the French Limousin Cattle, then current weights are cows, 1,543 pounds and for bulls 2,645 pounds.
There are numerous breeds of cows that are brown in color. Names of these breeds can include Ankole-Watusi, Brown Swiss and Limousin.

That all depends on what breed they are and where you are located, as well as what kind of calves your local markets are demanding. If they are Angus cows they can be cross bred to a Brahman, Hereford or Shorthorn bull. If they are Charolais cows, they can be bred to a Red Angus, Angus, Hereford, Simmental, Shorthorn, Limousin, Brahman or Santa Gertrudis bull.
No. A Hereford cow will only give birth to a Hereford-Limousin cross calf if bred to a Limousin bull. Only a Limousin cow can give birth to a Limousin calf--IF she's bred to a Limousin bull. Just like a Hereford cow can only give birth to a Hereford calf if bred to a Hereford bull. Otherwise, she too (referring to the Limousin cow) can give birth to Hereford-Limousin-cross calf if bred to a Hereford bull.
Cattle is a general plural term not linked to a particular sex, as in a breed or herd of cattle. For example, I would say we have a small herd of Limousin Cattle, and then I would elaborate by saying that we have 8 cows (adult females) and a bull (adult breeding male).
Angus (Black Angus to some) is the most popular breed in the United States, followed by (not in order) Herefords, Brahman, Simmental, Charolais, Gelbvieh, Limousin, Beefmaster, and Salers.

A four to five-foot fence is sufficient, if it's just for cows. If you want to keep deer as well, you will need a six-foot-tall fence.
Mothering ability for Limousins is average. But that depends on the lineage: some blood lines are better mothers than others. Even so, if your Limousins are poor mothers you can always cull out those cows that have poorer mothering ability than what you want.

They can be, especially towards a predator like a bear, cougar or wolf they perceive as a threat towards their calves. Cows can also be dangerous and aggressive according to genetics: depending on that cow's traits from her dam and sire, she has the potential to be as nervous and flighty (which initiates her to be aggressive when cornered) from either her sire's side or her dam's side. The same thing for the potential for… Read More
Limousin cattle are a beef breed, not a dairy breed of cattle. So in other words, no not really. They have a milking ability that is matched to that of Angus, which is not nearly as good as Holstein or Jersey.
A mature beef cow can average between 4-6 feet tall (at the shoulder), usually the bulls will be taller than the cows.
It's not a common thing, but it does happen on occasion, especially if they were sheltering under a tall tree that got hit by lightning. But most often cows don't get electrocuted in a thunderstorm.
