Increasing the frequency of lambing to less than a 12-month interval offers the potential of increased total productivity on an annual basis. In addition, it spreads the marketing opportunities and provides a wider distribution of labor and facility usage. A major industry benefit is it would supply a more constant source of new crop lamb to the market place. This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of decreased lambing intervals.
