The lambs will be coming in February or March. I will be raising a limited number of lambs in 2011. If you would like to reserve a lamb, please let me know as early as possible. I plan to raise 10 lambs, and so far I have reservations for 5, so they’re going fast. How many lambs I raise in 2011 will be entirely dependant on how many bummer lambs are available. Reservations are first come first served, and on farm slaughter is available. You do not have to put a deposit down to reserve a lamb, but you do need to let me know you’d like to reserve one for the upcoming season. You may reserve a half or whole lamb. Your total cost for a lamb will be $3.69/lb hanging weight at slaughter. 6 month old lambs should dress out between 60 and 100 lbs depending on whether it’s a ram or a ewe lamb, and the breed.
