Nolz Limousin Cattle-NOLZ Limousin
About NOLZ Limousin
NOLZ Limousin was established in 1982 with the purchase of a purebred Limousin bull to breed to Dave and Alvin Nolz's black baldy cows. Seeing an immediate improvement in weaning weights and overall performance, we were hooked on "the carcass breed," and made the transition from a commercial cattle operation to a purebred Limousin seedstock business. Our neighbors also noticed a difference in the looks of our calf crops, and we sold our first registered bulls in 1984.
For more than 37 years, Dave has selected bulls and females to produce cattle that have excellent calving ease, milking ability, heavy weaning and yearling weights and docility. Consistency in our calf crop and longevity of our bulls and mama cows have also been top priorities. We strive to raise bulls that will perform in any environment. We believe Limousin bulls are the ideal complement to an English-based commercial cowherd that provides a boost of high-bred vigor for extra pounds, performance and muscle that pays on sale day.
Our passion is truly the Limousin breed, but our greatest reward is hearing testimonies from our customers who are also seeing the benefits of using NOLZ Limousin in their programs. After decades in this business, we greatly appreciate all of our customers. Your feedback helps drive our breeding program forward, and our focus will always be on raising bulls that will help meet your production goals!
Meet Our Family
Dave and Peggy (Wienk) Nolz married in October 1985, and raised three daughters -- Amanda, Courtney and Kaley -- on the ranch. Growing up, the girls spent each summer showing our Limousin heifers and steers across the country. It was a great way to spend time together as a family, and we look forward to our grandkids continuing that fun family tradition in the years to come. Peggy is also the CFO at Puetz Design + Build in Mitchell, SD.
