When is a lamb no longer a lamb?
A newborn lamb has no teeth, and milk teeth start to appear about a week after birth. A lamb usually acquires its eight milk teeth or lambs teeth by 8 weeks of age. At approximately 12 months of age, the first permanent incisor teeth appear in pairs, starting with the two central teeth. This animal is no longer a lamb – it is now referred to as a ‘two tooth’.
What does the stamp ‘LMB’ mean?
Butchered lamb is stamped LMB with a pink identifying food dye. This is a statutory processing requirement for lamb for human consumption.
Can I order ‘milk fed’ or ‘two tooth’ lamb?
Depending on the season and time of year, we may have milk fed prime lamb available to order. This is young lamb usually about 20 weeks of age and should be a light pink in appearance. We also have clients who prefer ‘two tooth’ instead of lamb. This can be arranged on request.
What is the history of the property?
The original property was purchased by Neil’s grandfather in 1950 as a condemned, rabbit infested and run down farm. Through droughts and flooding rains, bushfires, births, deaths and marriages, passion and hard work, the farm proudly produces fine merino wool and fine prime lamb.
