Canada is known for the Industrial production of Beef and Chicken. Luckily, Calves and Lambs are produced mostly by small farmers. Goat farming is almost insignificant in Canada.
Lamb is sheep that is 1 year old. Lamb is inherently more healthy choice than beef as it contains a higher amount of Zinc and Iron. Lamb is a powerhouse of Vitamin B, including Vitamin B3, B6, and B12. Lamb is loaded with immune-boosting zinc. Lamb's fat is rich in Omega3 fatty acid. If exterior fat is removed, then the intra-meat fat in Lamb is much less than beef.
Most young lamb in Ontario end up either in high-end non-Halal stores or end up as "Goat" in the Halal meat stores. The older lambs (or Sheep) are often sold as sheep in the non-Halal section or generally as "lamb' in the Halal sections. The oldest sheep is then sold as Mutton.
