Colorado Lamb


LOCALLY PRODUCED


Because they’re adaptable to a wide range of climates and management systems, lamb is raised in every state in the country, and fresh local lamb is available year round. The top five producing states are TX, CA, CO, WY and SD. All our lamb is from Colorado.


NATURAL

No artificial growth hormones are used in lamb production in the U.S.*

*Although growth hormones are not used in lamb production in the US, they are legal to use.


ANIMAL CARE

American Lamb producers care about the health and welfare of the lambs they raise. They provide a healthy, comfortable existence for their animals. The shepherds make sure all animals have natural grazing compatible with the environment, a clean water source and protection from predators. Lambs are vulnerable to many predators including coyotes, wolves, mountain lions and bears. Shepherds protect their flocks with the help of guard dogs, donkeys and llamas.

WHOLESOME

American lambs are reared on high quality natural forage diets. Sheep are herbivores. Their ideal pasture is an array of luscious greens, nutritious legumes and forbs (a broad-leafed flowering plant). Some lambs are marketed directly from the pasture, while others are grain-fed for a short time. Whatever your lamb preferences are (natural, organic, grassfed, or grain-finished), you will find what you’re looking for at a store or butcher near you
