Illinois Junior Limousin Exhibitor Earns O’Brien Award

Corinne Harrison, 22, of Minier, Ill., received the Dick O’Brien Memorial Junior Herdsman Award at the National Junior Limousin Show and Congress (NJLSC) in Sioux Falls, S.D. The North American Limousin Junior Association (NALJA) presented the award at its annual awards banquet July 18.

State Limousin junior advisors nominate NJLSC exhibitors for the O’Brien Award to recognize a superior job of caring for animals, interacting with others, meeting the public and demonstrating maturity. First presented in 1996, the award honors the memory of Limousin enthusiast Dick O’Brien. With more than 30 years in the breed, the O’Brien family from Missouri has one of the nation’s pioneer Limousin herds.

The North American Limousin Foundation (, headquartered in Centennial, Colo., provides programs and services – including genetic evaluation of 5,000 active sires – to more than 4,000 members and their commercial customers. The Limousin breed and its Lim-Flex® hybrid lead the beef industry in muscle-growth efficiency and ideally complement British breeds.
