STORE LAMB PROGRAMME

As part of our GAP Lamb supply into the US market we need GAP store lamb producers to continue the GAP accreditation from birth through to our finishers through to market. This option enables you to be part of the family without having to supply prime lambs to slaughter. If you want to know and receive direct market feedback about the product you are producing and feel like you are involved in something bigger, then this option could be for you…
