Easter is the lamb industry’s most important holiday. Leg sales averaged about $1 million weekly last year and spiked to $12 million during Easter – 21 percent of total annual leg sales. About 150,000 lbs. of legs sold weekly and climbed to 2.2 million lbs. during Easter. The industry is in good shape for Easter, but there is some concern post-Easter.
