So, we went to the store and they had a super wed. sale on new york strips, like with every good deal there is a hitch and they were a bit fatty. off of 30 some # I cut off 5# of fat and plan to freeze it and feed it to the chick's this winter when they need a little extra to keep warm. Mi. winters can be cold. question is would you render it down and fill with seed or just throw as is in the run.
