I have started this about sheep. not just raising them , but for meat. I have heard everything about how to butcher them but , I have also heard so many opposing views. I have cleaned at least 3 deer a year for over 30 yrs. I have just started a small homestead to support and supply my family with healthier and self reliant foods. back to sheep. I have heard about a stinky, nasty lanolin taste to the meat if ( or something of that sort) unless u do something to the meat???? I have no idea of this. I have had lamb from a butcher a long time ago. does anyone have any ideas of what this is. I have never butchered a sheep before. any advice can be helpful to me.
