nthole.. "What I find most humorous is the OZ vs NZ claims of sheep farking. For Chrests sake, all ya'll are just two islands of criminals anyways."

Mate ... all the convicts were either shipped to The West Island (Australia to you yanks) and Norfolk Island. The South Island and mainland (North Island) of New Zealand were populated by fare paying immigrants not pommy criminal exports!

Muzza, slumming it with the criminals in Perth for a while.

Those fare payng no hopers didn't get convicts because they hadnt the infrastructure, had nothing to do with colonization.
Muzz, your kiwi education is showing you up!

The USA got 400% more convicts than Australia, the majority to New England...funny that.

The criminal classes where the blokes with uniforms and the administrators, as history has born out.
Apparently , the American convicts all went straight into politics, just like here!

BTW, we regard it with pride if we have a convict in our past, and shame if we have a trooper or administrator in our past.
Or the informed Aussies do.

Not that I'm biased but which sheep is going to taste the best? Kiwi ones raised on green grass or Ozzy ones raised on sand(wichs).The true test is feed levels and age. If Merrycan lamb is truly hogget age then I feel sorry for y'all. Hogget is a kind of in between thing... too old to be tender young lamb and not enough flavour to be awesome mutton yet!

I know that picture of the kiwi mother and daughter by themselves on green grass will be exciting to my Ozzy hosts so share it happily. .... the true identity and location of the girls will remain a secret so no need to dob me in to the animal welfare chaps for spreading Ozzy outback pron on the innernet. Anyway the photo was taken to show the arty contrast of virgin white and healthy green ........ thats my story and I'm sticking to it OK!

Muzza .. stuck in Perth for a while and living with a bunch of under arm bowlers!!.

Breed plays a huge role in the flavor of the meat, as does feed and age, as mentioned by others here. I raise sheep, and have been through a few breeds and the difference in meat from breed to breed, raised side by side and slaughtered at the same age, is staggering. Like, could be a whole 'nother animal. Anyway, to answer the question, the best tasting lamb is from my pasture! Hah, kidding, but I would have no idea what the imports taste like, that chit is expensive! Anyone close enough want to try some of mine out, hit me up. All this years' lambs are spoken for but there will be more next spring.

400% more quantity or 400% more quality? That is how we whipped their arses back to Buckingham. You boys were too busy with those sheep to fight.....

I kid, I kid...

We buy local lamb. That way I get to choose exactly how old and what they are eating. With out the benefits you guys enjoy.

I've only had New Zeland and Murica' lamb and there is a huge difference. Imported is way better. US lamb is larger and grain hammered with feed. Which is what we do, make it bigger, and make it cheaper.

In doing that we have lost a lot of the real lamb flavor. Any untrained eye can easily spot the difference in size and flesh color when comparing the two lamb racks side by side.

I love the stuff, just can't afford it much.

A number of years ago I spent 5 weeks working for the Asian Development Bank in Quetta (in Pakistan on border of Afganistan). Lamb & goat were served young and both called mutton. But on many street corners (dirt roads) enterprising locals built fires and BBQed "mutton" by pushing a sharpened stick through a leg and sticking it in the ground and turning as necessary. Give them a $1 and they would sprinkle some salt on the meat and wrap it in massive pieces of flat bread to take a way. Definitely superior to Macdonalds!!!

I can understand the Kiwi and Aussie varieties, but I was a little taken aback that there is so much demand for Maricon lamb that this is put in its own category. I guess those crazy lamb farkers will try anything.

The articles, one written by a teenager and the other by a lamb farm, claim Karoo as "the lamb World renowned as the best".
Nobody here has heard of it and I'll bet you whatever you want most of the brethren have never heard of it.
It isn't the scent of herbs I'm getting...

Yes, I Have heard of Karoo Lamb. My South Effrican neigbour has mentioned it before. He does say it is generally better than Aussie Supermarket Lamb, but not better than special breed / special feed / organic etc lamb. The Karoo is South Africa's equivalent of Nebraska... sorta... position wise at least.
