Put Friday 24 May 2019 in your diaries - it's #NationalLambDay
On 24 May 1882, the Dunedin arrived into London - after a 98 day voyage - to deliver the first shipment of New Zealand lamb. It was on this very day New Zealand lamb was shared with the rest of the world.
Fast forward to today and our lamb is internationally renowned and in high demand. Here's how we'll be celebrating this iconic day with our fellow Kiwis.
