Lambs are a recent addition to our lineup, but a species that Sam has wanted to add to our multi-species grazing program for some time.
The animals came from a neighboring ranch and the breed (Katahdin) is known to perform well on pasture without competing with the cattle for forage. In fact, many of the plants they eat are "weeds" the cows won't touch. The fact that sheep and cows have different nutritional needs means we have the opportunity for greater production from the parcels the animals graze while we manage the pasture for soil health.
Since Sam brought them back to the ranch, they've been grazing our pastures with abandon. One thing we feel confident promising is that, because they're foraging the same grasses and plants that make our beef uniquely delicious, they'll be uniquely delicious too.
