I made two of these for beef, but for lamb, I squeezed into one.

Lamb can be variable because there is so much variation in the size and breeds of the lamb and the cuts that people choose. Most folks choose to have a lamb cut into bone-in cuts, but there are boneless options, too. Removing the bone removes weight and lowers the yields.

Check out the Lamb Quality Video series on the Lamb Board website. Hosted by Travis Hoffman, Ph.D., this is a great industry resource on:
- Lamb Carcass Characteristics,
- USDA Quality Grading,
- Live Lamb Evaluation,
- USDA Yield Grades, and
- Retail Meat Quality.

This checkoff-funded series is a cooperative project between ALB, Premier 1 Supplies, and extension services of North Dakota and Minnesota universities.

We are definitely a lamb lovin bunch 🥰 and we kicked off the first week of February with 100 lambs born 😮🐑 This was a record breaker!! The days have been filled with many ups and downs, but we are truly thankful to live this life- and help nurture the gift of new life. It has truly helped fill the void of the recent loss of our best Pyrenees guardian dog, Daphney. She sure did love and protect her lambs 💜

Fact sheet from Washington State University
Tube feeding neonatal small ruminants: an essential skill for sheep and goat farmers

https://extension.wsu.edu/wam/tube-feeding-neonatal-small-ruminants-an-essential-skill-for-sheep-and-goat-farmers/

When is tube feeding necessary? If an animal is too weak or otherwise unable to nurse, it needs to be tube fed. Other situations include maternal factors (lack of milk production, lack of mothering, mastitis, death) and management decisions to control various diseases (C.A.E., O.P.P., Johne’s disease, etc.). If the lamb or kid will drink from a bottle, this is always preferable to tube feeding.
