Lambs–and the livin’ is easy

Lambs on feed

Lambs on feed

 

After our lambs are born, on the range or in lambing sheds, after they spend the summer grazing on the Forest with their moms (dodging bears and coyotes), after they are weaned, they ride on big trucks to a feedlot near Greeley, Colorado. There they are fed on a natural ration until they become lamb chops, sold through the Mountain States Lamb Cooperative. In the meantime, they are well-cared for by the feedlot folks, who see to their well-being.

Sometimes the lambs share their feed in a sort of multi-species way!
