“We are pleased that USDA is able to send lamb into nine different markets through the federal food program,” comments Glen Fisher (Texas), president of the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI). “This is an excellent opportunity for people to taste a meat that they may not otherwise have tried.”
Now why is it so important to give people a "taste" for a different kind of animal flesh? Because really, it all tastes "like chickens" - that taste like pigs... that taste just like us! Think of it... No animal has any particular "flavor". There's no such thing as "chicken flavor" or "lamb flavor"... It's all done with seasonings and spices - That come from (you got it!) PLANTS! That's what makes food taste good! I challenge any meat eater to prepare whatever pound of flesh of their choice totally without plant based seasonings - They will quickly find their food bland and totally unappealing. This is why "beef flavor" is a total myth!

Both here and abroad... It's so wrong to kill Mary's little lambs.
