An open letter to the US sheep industry from the American Lamb Board

Three letters that may help you to understand the US lamb situation and steps underway to improve it.

1. The first letter is from the American Lamb Board (I serve on that board). It explains the steps ALB is taking to address the long-term decline in the US sheep industry.

2. The second letter is from the National Lamb Feeders, and more particularly, from Tom and Karin Watson of Oregon. Tom was Superior Farms Head Lamb Buyer for 30 years and is a personal friend. Few people know more about the lamb industry than Tom and Karin Watson.

3. The third is a copy of an article that was sent to me by the National Lamb Feeders. It’s from New Zealand and demonstrates that their sheep producers are experiencing similar problems.

Please visit the link below to read each letter in detail, thank you.
