Club Lamb (Butcher's Choice Award) 

The goal of this competition is to compare carcasses of various sheep and breeds as well as produce objective data to assist producers. During the 'on the hook' stage an experienced butcher will assess individual carcasses. Individual carcasses will be judged on various qualities including carcass weight and size, fat coverage and marbling). Information on each carcase will be used to compare the eating quality.

Comments: 

The lamb carcass in first place was a Hampshire Down. This was the heaviest lamb in the competition. Considering it was a six-month old lamb it is likely that it met its target weight quite quickly. Fat covered major primals, cube roll, striploin and rump. Muscle coverage and fat depth across the 12th-13th ribs was very good and made it stand out from the rest. 


The lamb carcass in second place was a Hampshire Down. It’s carcass attributes were very similar to the lamb in first place. Its carcass weight was slightly less, as was its muscle coverage across the 12th-13th ribs. Fat depth and coverage of fat over the butt was very good. 


The lamb carcass in third place was a Wiltshire Horn. Its carcass weight was less and it was leaner than the other two lambs. Muscle coverage and depth across the 12th-13th ribs was good. But fat depth and coverage made the difference on the day. 


The lamb carcasses in 4th and 5th place were Wiltshire Horn. They both had satisfactory to good muscling, but were very lean.
