Ray & Christine Vlietstra
Raystine Limousins                           
26 Spoonbill Place
Albion Park Rail  NSW  2527
Ph:  (02) 4257 1206

We have been involved with Limousins since the early 90’s; initially with Birubi, then purchasing our first Limousin female in 1994. Our foundation cows were French Pure however we quickly realised their shortcomings with regard to temperament and horns. We have since solely used polled, apricot and black bulls with above average docility EBV’s. Our aim is to produce bulls with traditional Limousin muscling, in an early maturing package. Acceptable docility is essential in both our bulls and particularly our replacement females. We are ever mindful of the traits of calving ease and high carcase yield which are expected of Limousin cattle.
We are proud to have been accepted as vendors in the Northern Limousin Breeders Sale (Scone) since 2006.
