John Bruner and his family began Dakota Natural® Limousin Beef with the intent on showcasing the delicious eating quality found in Limousin beef. Today, the Dakota Natural® brand has an extensive list of restaurant, catering, and consumer clients found in the Upper Midwest.
In France, the Limousin breed is known as the “Butchers Breed” because they genetically provide a large muscle mass with very little fat. Their most unique attribute is in the finer muscle fiber that gives Limousin Beef eating qualities not naturally found in other breeds of cattle.
Dakota Natural’s® parent company, Bruner Limousin, Inc., has been ranching in East Central South Dakota for over 30 years. They have been and continue to raise and sell some of the finest Limousin breeding animals available today.
In order to preserve the integrity of the Limousin product and customer satisfaction, a number of guidelines are strictly enforced:
