The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Is increasing production possible without making major investments?

We’re all well aware of the opportunity and
challenge facing our industry. Canadian
lamb consumption has grown by 68% in the
past nine years; unfortunately, the number
of lambs processed in Canada isn’t keeping
pace. Currently, we can only meet 41% of the
demand. If we don’t increase supply, we will
continue to see retailers move to imported
product. Many of us talk about flock expansion
as a solution to preserving our domestic
market. So why aren’t more producers
expanding?
