What lamb cuts to get??


Livestock Farmer
I had my first crop of lambs this year and most simply went to market. The final 3 are for a friend and will go to the abattoir in a week or so. What would be a good selection of cuts to get? My friend will be dishing it all out to his family for general meals... The lambs are low 40kgs.
The lady at the abattoir suggested no end of possibilities. I just wondered if there was a fairly standard set of cuts to get???

chops done in Barnsley chops as well as chops is another option, makes better use of the chop too..
Also leg steaks make a useful cut….
Belly, I find some like this as choose to stuff and slow roast it, but for less Traditional types that don’t know what to do with it minced sells best for me..
the neck in ringlets, for stewing or filleted both as useful.


Personally I get our lambs done into chops, leg& shoulder joints, everything else into a few burgers and a few bags of mince … most other stuff like the neck and stuff is too tough for me
