So how old is NZ lamb when its killed?


Lamb is traditionally eaten at Easter in the NH, which means they are barely a couple of months old.

Much of the lamb in Europe would be called hogget in New Zealand. Sheep born in a particular calendar year and slaughtered before 30 June the following year is classified as lamb, so it can be 18 months old rather than 12.

Thought you were a farmer?

Funny I remember doing pricing stuff at college and how prices for lambs are highest at Easter and drop off after that.
Also remember doing lambing duty in Jan and that was 35 years ago.





PS, Go to Greece and not have lamb for Easter.

There’s nothing more tedious than parochialism about cuisine. It’s surely appropriate to argue over battles fought, sports contests waged between nations etc. But arguing about food? Very gay, and not in the good homosexual preference and practices way.

French national identity is partly based on its cuisine. Hence why the road to an EU trade deal usually goes through Paris first. :nod:

Have pride in your cuisine, sure. I myself love a pavlova. But turning into a nationalistic spoon measuring contest is pretentious and petty

You can have spring Lamb at easter - but those lambs would have been born in December/Jan - so would be about 4 months old. However far more likely to be last year's lamb flushed on some spring grass.

No one sells lamb at 2 month old - they ain't big enough!

No, they're born the previous spring. If it was born anytime in 2019, it's lamb if it's slaughtered before June 30 2020.

No - some farms sponge their sheep to have lambs in Dec/Jan - so they can sell as spring lamb in April & get those high prices. One of my neighbours does it (it is the exeption - but it does happen)

Sorry, yeah, that can be done as well, it's an exception as you say and I think you can only use the term 'spring lamb' in those circumstances. But EU regs say it can be sold as lamb if it meets the description I've posted as well.

This is one of those occasions where we're both right. Lovely friendly Internet.

In Spain lambing season is dec-jan but because there is demand all year round they stagger it to occur 3 times a year.

Lamb here is killed mainly for Lechal (milk lamb) and usually 20-30 days old. To be considered milk lamb it must be under 45 days old.

Stop talking rot Willie. It can be very area specific.

As an example, Wicklow spring lambs are generally available shortly after St.Patricks Day, while some of the best Connemara lamb would be prime around June/July

The problem with NZ lamb lasting through the winter is by that time they'd no longer be virgins.

The Aussies are slightly concerning. They keep putting the things on their money, they talk about riding "on the sheep's back", and then they make sexual jokes about sheep and New Zealanders, which is just classic deflection.

Spring Lambs are highest price in Easter because there aren't many of them about. People lamb in Janurary, but they are few and far between.

Funny you should bring this up. I've heard the term "sheep shaggers" used mostly when discussing Ozzies but every time I had an unfortunate run-in with an ozzie and asked him/her about it they always say that I must be confused because its the Kiwis that shag sheep.

The Aussies love to deflect what was originally a joke about them on to us.

We might have more sheep per capita then them but we don't have a national song about a man hanging out with a sheep, nor do we have a song about tying kangaroos down.
