Sheep and goat meat

Even at more than 57 million sheep and goats slaughtered (2018 figures) the EU remains a net importer of sheep and goat products, with Australia but especially New Zealand supplying the bulk of our imports. Australians consider the leg of lamb roast to be their national dish. Meat from sheep features prominently in several cuisines of the Mediterranean. It is an integral component of many meals, including religious feasts.
