The lamb drafting pattern is getting back on track on Tullamore Farm, with over 100 lambs drafted over the last month. Early weaning, followed by a sustained drought period, significantly hit performance earlier in the year, which in turn pushed out finishing dates and hampered the normal drafting pattern.

Lamb performance has improved markedly in recent weeks, in terms of daily performance and slaughter performance. Table 1 details the slaughter performance of lambs drafted to-date.
