The Truth Behind Lamb Roast

Like humans, it is widely proven that mother sheep and goats bond immediately with their newborns. They also know the individual odour of their own babies.

Far from mindless followers, sheep are highly social with sophisticated emotional skills that can recognise human and animal faces. Research increasingly suggests that sheep can form images in their brain of absent individuals (such as their babies) when they are not visible, just as humans would think about a friend or family member that they miss.
In Australia alone, often born in the most inhospitable conditions of winter, an estimated 15 million lambs die annually due to exposure and other preventable causes. Adequate shelter can greatly prevent this, but sadly this is not a legal requirement in Australia.
