We’re on a mission to provide all Gundagai Lamb farmers with priceless information about their flock which allows them to nurture and breed a healthier, more resilient, better tasting lamb.
Set on the Eastern slopes of New South Wales’ Riverina region, Gundagai proves the perfect place to bring our vision to life. Its warm and temperate climate creates the perfect conditions for raising lambs, with boundless lush pastures and fresh country air for lambs to roam in freely.
Proudly founded by the Barton’s in 2020, Gundagai Lamb is a celebration of the family’s 100+ year legacy as leaders in the Australian meat industry, and undoubtedly the shining jewel in the GMP crown.
Like you, we’re obsessed with knowing as much as we can about the quality of the food we produce and consume. Which is why we’re so excited to tell you about our new technology that allows us to accurately measure the Lean Meat Yield, Intramuscular Fat (think delicious marbling) and Animal Health of all Gundagai Lambs.
From there, we grade each lamb on the perfect balance of mouth watering intramuscular fat and just the right amount of tender lean meat. And for the first time, the healthier the lamb, the higher the grade. To keep things simple, the grading starts at GLQ1. But rest assured, the only lambs to make the Gundagai Lamb grade are at least a GLQ5. We never settle for anything less than the highest quality and best tasting lamb.
Check out the below illustration to see some of our GLQ Score in action, measuring Intramuscular Fat and Lean Meat Yield.
We believe that the best innovations are those that push us forward as a society, and help us achieve a more sustainable future for all living things. A future where lambs are cared for, communities are supported, environmental impacts are reduced and financial resilience is ensured for generations to come.
At Gundagai Lamb, we’re proud pioneers when it comes to understanding and improving the health of our animals. We also accurately measure Lean Meat Yield, which helps optimise land use and avoid excess fat production in each lamb.
While our innovations and the mouthwatering taste of our lambs speak for themselves, our true measure of success is the passion and commitment of our farmers. Armed with our trusted feedback, these hard working men and women roll up their sleeves to continually improve the quality and health of their lambs. The result? A more sustainable future for all.
Gundagai Lamb has taste buds tap-dancing all over Australia right now.
