About the NLFA

National Lamb Feeders, started in 1950 by three men who lived through the sheep-buying, selling and shipping days of the 1930s and 1940s. It is a story steeped in history as rich as the sheep industry itself.

Their dream of an organization that would assist lamb feeders and their belief in what individuals devoting their time, energy and resources could accomplish for the lamb feeding industry came true.
