Short summary
We tried to figure out whether it was possible to produce high-quality lamb meat the whole year by taking advantage of seasonal pastures. We reared lambs in winter, spring–summer and autumn. Average daily gain, carcass weight and dressing percentage increased in winter lambs. Carcass fatness decreased in spring–summer and autumn lambs which suckled their dams and also grazed in seasonal pasture. Meat from spring–summer lambs was not appreciated by the panellists in the sensory evaluation.
