What countries are limousin cattle are popular?
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.
Limousin cattle are beef cattle.
Angus, Charolais, Hereford, Limousin and Simmental.
Limousin cattle are both horned and polled depending on genetics. Horned tends to be more prevalent, but it is not uncommon to see French breeders that have polled Limousin cattle. Polled Limousin are most common in North America.
Angus, Charolais, Brahman, Simmental, Hereford, Limousin, Gelbvieh and Red Angus.
The main breeds are Angus (being the most popular), Charolais, Hereford, Limousin, Simmental.
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.
Limousin cattle are known as the "carcass" breed, meaning that they have a high quality of meat, strong calving ease and maternal qualities.
If they match the Limousin Association's (depending which country you are living in) breed standards and you are wanting to breed Limousins, then yes.

Not sure what you mean here, as there really is no such thing as "material weight." It's either live weight or carcass weight, depending on age and sex. Live weight of Limousin cattle is around 1600 lbs; bulls tend to be a bit heavier.
Continental cattle are the cattle that were imported from Europe to improve the growth rate and leanness of existing breeds. Continental beef breeds are as follows: Charolais, Chianina, Gelbvieh, Limousin, Maine Anjou, Salers, and Simmental

Primarily for beef production. Historically, Limousins were also used for draft and even dairy production.
All domestic cattle have the same scientific name no matter the breed: Bos taurus
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.
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).

Limousins are not the easiest to spot, unless you're in France or looking for the more traditional coloured type cattle and are not spotting them from the highway traveling 100 km/hr down the road. Typically the heritage-type Limousin cattle are a mahogany-red colour with light undertones in the underline, around the eyes, muzzle and extending to the inside of each leg. They are very blocky in bodily conformation, making them look like beefy rectangles on… Read More
There is no difference. It's the same breed, only that one of the words you spelt out in your question is incorrect. Limousin is spelt L-I-M-O-U-S-I-N not L-I-M-O-U-S-I-N-E. And it's pronounced lim-o-zeen not lim-o-zine where "zine" is pronounced like "sign" or "mine."
This all depends on who you're asking this to. Some will say that Herefords can be the most calmest breed but have some of the most nastiest cattle out there. I hear more complaints about bad temperament in Chianina, Limousin, Charolais, and Brahman cattle. Angus and Red Angus cattle can have some wicked cattle too. The nasties depend on environment, how they were raised, and genetics.

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.
There is no best breed. The best French breed depends on what kind of qualities and characteristics you're looking for. The best french breed in terms of calving ease is Limousin, for instance.

Hereford cattle are the second or third most popular beef cattle in the United States, next to other more popular breeds like Angus and Charolais.
It would vary depending on the individual Limousin.
Some breeders have been focusing on creating cattle with a more calm and docile temperament, trying to get away from the all-too-well-known ability of most Limousins to be flighty, aggressive and quite nervous that is still a common thing in most animals to date.
They can be either or. Traditional Limounsins were predominantly horned, but more or most of the modern or North American Limousins are polled due to safety concerns that horns pose for animals and people.

Whatever hay that grows in your area or in your pastures/hayfields. Shorthorns will eat the same sort of hay that Angus or Simmentals or Limousins will eat, there's no difference in the type of hay to feed in regards to breeds of cattle. As a matter of fact, Shorthorns often will do better on average-quality hay than continentals like Simmental or Limousin will, just like with Angus or Hereford cattle.
