As a consequence of its nature, lamb trade is characteristically seasonal, which is principally concentrated to the Easter and Christmas periods as well as the month of August. From Hungary we primarily market lambs, which are cross-bred with merino and meat-type breeds. The animals are fattened with excellent quality feed, as a result if which their pink, exceptionally high quality and delicious meat is extremely popular. Italy is the destination for the majority of export, where mutton is very popular, especially at Easter and Christmas.
Aside from marketing Hungarian animals, our company purchases lambs from Slovakia and Romania as well. In these regions sheep are still kept under traditional circumstances, therefore most of them originate from herds, which are grazed in a natural environment under the supervision of a shepherd. We fatten these animals to a larger weight at our sites and we export the majority of them to Arab countries, where they are extremely popular.
