Commercial lamb note
« on: September 02, 2009, 03:58:09 am »
Just checked the wikipedia entry for omega-3s and it confirmed what I'd thought, that most commercially-raised/nonorganic-raised  lamb is fed on grass. The US is the only exception as they generally feed them on grains etc.:-

I thought I read somewhere that the New Zealand lamb is also grain-finished.

So presumably supermarket organic is grass fed as well?

I heard nz lamb can be grainfed in the 3 months before slaughter, but perhaps not all NZ lamb.
