Quick UPDATE - Jr Market Lambs

This first class of market lambs are light weight fine wools. This means that they areb117 pounds or less. Though these lambs are sheared for the judge to more easily determine muscling and fat throughout the body, "fine wool" means that their hair is usually thin and silky. Fine wools hair is not generally very long. We call the length of a lock of wool its "staple". Right now the judge is determining which lamb is the most structurally correct, exhibits the most breed characteristics and is the most market ready.
