Locally rotationally symmetric perfect fluid solutions of Einstein's gravitational equations are matched along the hypersurface of vanishing pressure with the NUT metric. These rigidly rotating fluids are interpreted as sources for the vacuum exterior which consists only of a stationary region of the Taub-NUT spacetime. The solution of the matching conditions leaves generally three parameters in the global solution. Examples of perfect fluid sources are discussed.
