Description:
In the US, most lambs are born during the first five months of the year. Yet, commercial lamb harvest remains somewhat constant throughout the year. As a result, there are periods when the supply of lamb is inconsistent. Inconsistent supply creates industry issues: market price volatility, supply of market ready lambs, and irregular supply of carcass size and/or quality. The primary goal of this presentation is to provide information on the current situation of seasonality of lamb supply so that members of the industry can make informed decisions. This will include: (a) factors that affect seasonal supply of US and imported lamb; (b) demand for lamb by season for both traditional and nontraditional markets; (c) factors that influence seasonal supply of lamb from the farm/ranch gate; (d) opportunities to alter the seasonal supply of US lamb; and, (e) case studies of producers who have shifted their season of production to meet a shortage of lamb.

This webinar is made possible with funding support from the Let's Grow Committee of the American Sheep Industry Association.
