sheep, fall lambing
Seasonality of lamb production continues to plague the industry and feeds the large price swings found in the market place. This translates into a fluctuating economic picture for lamb producer, feeder, packer, and consumer. This wide price fluctuation makes accurate financial projections difficult if not impossible. Fall lambing offers a means of spreading the available supply of fresh American lamb over more months, thus reducing the common practice of holding lambs back or over finishing lambs.
