Webinar to Discuss American Lamb Seasonality

Webinar to Discuss American Lamb Seasonality

8/7/2018 8:36:00 AM/Categories: General News, Ag Conferences, People in Ag, Livestock, Sheep, National News, Ag Issues, Research, Education

Seasonality of the United States Lamb Industry is the topic for the next webinar sponsored by the American Sheep Industry Association's Let's Grow Program. Reid Redden, Ph.D. - sheep and goat specialist for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension - will lead the discussion. Dr. Jay Parsons of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will host the webinar that is scheduled for Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. eastern time.

In the United States, 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 American and imported lamb; (b) demand for lamb by season for both traditional and non-traditional markets; (c) factors that influence seasonal supply of lamb from the farm/ranch gate; (d) opportunities to alter the seasonal supply of American lamb; and, (e) case studies of producers who have shifted their season of production to meet a shortage of lamb.
