As we prepare for another season of winter lambs, I can’t help but reflect on my trip to sell healthy, full-grown spring lambs last week. It’s amazing that these animals turn our abundant – otherwise inedible to us – pastures into healthy meat for families like ours. Here’s a comparison of the same lamb when he was newly born to the time he was ready for harvest.
In just a few months, our lambs grow to be about 110-145 pounds. We can’t keep them all, but we can provide care and attention for each animal on our farm.
