Congratulations to After Hours Limousins, Rob and Erin Weppler & Family – winners of the Madgett Award
The award is presented to the person or family that takes that extra step to promote the limousin cattle breed in Ontario for the benefit of all.

The family farm has been in the Weppler family for over a century and it is now the fourth and fifth generation continuing the tradition here.  Rob & Erin carried on in the beef cattle industry in 1990 with limousin cross cattle, and within 10 years decided the focus would be mainly in the purebred limousin business.  They keep a small herd of 30 cows but are continuously striving to improve their genetics by using leading AI sires and embryo transfer. They run 190 acres which is primarily used for their own feed and pastureland.Along with their 3 children they enjoy using the show ring as a marketing tool and a way to socialize with fellow breeders and customersA large accomplishment for After Hours Limousins was hosting their first open house and private treaty sale in 2016 on the farm. Currently they sell bulls and females privately off the farm year round as well as consign to the Eastern Showcase Sale.
