There’s both good and bad news for those who like sheep. Whilst the petting can continue for a little while longer, those who like them stewed in cabbage (fårikål) – a traditional Norwegian dish – will have to wait. Blame it on the weather.

Baa-a-a-d weather

According to NRK, the sheep’s wool is too wet for them to be slaughtered because of all the rain the country has had recently.

“Some farmers are choosing to wait with ‘sauesanking’ (ed: collecting their sheep from grazing) because their wool is wet. The farmers get paid less for the wool if it isn’t dry and in good condition, and this leads to the meat getting to us later than normal,” Nina Sundqvist, head of communications in Nortura tells NRK.

Nortura plans to bump off 800,000 of them this autumn.

“All we like sheep,” as Handel the composer wrote in his “Messiah”.
