Grilled ~ Grass Fed Lamb

The American Lamb Board had a display table at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival last weekend, and they were handing out recipe booklets and flyers.
I took the opportunity to taste test their 'Herb-Parmesan Rub' this evening on grilled, 2" thick, grass fed, lamb chops. Yumm!
Lamb loin chops 'resting' for approx. 1 hour before grilling.

Promoting Mules

We started off the New Year by promoting the NAMSS, Mule Sheep,
and the 3-Tier Breeding System at the:
Michigan Sheep Breeders Assoc. 'Shepherd's Weekend'
held in Lansing, MI on a very cold and blustery weekend January 2nd & 3rd.
Our display table contained newsletters, tri-folds, and flyers for the NAMSS, and the BFLBA. As well as handouts announcing the dates for the 2010 Mule Sheep & Progeny Show,
and the Great Lakes ~ Bluefaced Leicester Show
to be held at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, September 10 - 12, 2010

We also had a laptop and display screen running different photo slideshows promoting Mule Sheep, grass fed lamb, and the different breeds associated with the 3-Tier Breeding System.
We had many interested sheep producers asking about the 3-Tier system, the breeds involved, and picking up the informational flyers and newsletters.
