When you think of livestock production in The Gambia, think traditional. Small-scale Gambia farmers keep lamb and sheep for household food, selling and trading. There are an estimated 145,000 sheep in the country; sheep's first year of life is called a lamb while mutton is a mature sheep. Lambs intended for meat are generally sent for slaughter at five to eight months old.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures.
