This is not “like” lambs to slaughter, it IS lambs to the slaughter.
Five ram lambs whet to the butcher shop the Tuesday after thanksgiving.
These five were sold to six different customers. Two people split the largest one.
We picked up three of them today, including the big one with two owners.
One of these is in our freezer here at the farm so that the lady that bought it can pick it up at her leisure. She has an intense job that made it impossible for her to get it during the week.
We still have eight market lambs left. Any that have not been sold before the Dec 16 livestock sale go to auction then.
