Putting a Spring into the step of our lambs!April 1, 2013
Following such extreme weather conditions, last week we sent our lamb producers in Wales and the West Country 30,000 lamb macs, to help protect thousands of lambs against the harsh weather conditions.
The macs, which were mainly purchased from Farmsense, are made of a light plastic material and completely biodegradable and recyclable. Liz Rees, Head of Lamb Procurement said: “”We felt the conditions were so horrendous and challenging for producers we wondered how we could possibly help. We felt the lamb macs would help maximise lamb survival in such conditions.”
We have been working closely with all of our producers to assess the impact of the snow on lamb supplies.
