A study on the profitability of Talaverana lambs

A study on the profitability of Talaverana lambs

Archivos de Zootecnia 47(178/179): 431-437

At present there are around 6000 Talaverana sheep in Spain. Lambs are normally slaughtered at 10-16, 16-22 or 22-25.4 kg. The average lamb birth weight is 3.5-4.0 kg, and the average body weight at 15-20 days, 35-42 days and 3.5-4 months of age is 8-10, 15 and 24 kg respectively. Details are presented in 5 graphs of production costs and lamb prices for lambs of the various weights. It is concluded that traditionally reared lambs slaughtered at 22-25 kg provide the highest profits.
