    I can buy a lamb for $$200 which has the best meat for chops and leg of lamb. I can also buy an ewe for $100. My question is can I use the meat from the ewe for other stuff than sausage? Will the belly and hams be to gamey?

    Hey Junkie...

    We raise lambs and have found that if the sheep is up to two years old, there is no gamey flavor. We try to rotate them from 4X4 lawn mowers to the freezer every one to two years.
