Lamb "season"?

I was told a while ago that spring lamb is always frozen because they are actually butchered mid summer. Is this true? When is the best time to buy "in season" lamb?

Spring refers to when the lamb was born, not when it was butchered. So yes, a spring lamb in the northern hemisphere, is typically butchered in July.
