No, at minimum the ground meat would be just fine. I put alpaca in the freezer older than that. I have put 9, 10 and 11 year old alpacas in the freezer and got the usual cuts. Once again, just cooking the meat properly and we had some really tender delicious meat.
I appreciate that info. Guess I'll be processing him then. I opt for ground because with only one of us working, we don't buy beef anymore I miss it! But we have a friend I bought a sheep from, and had it ground. It was very similar to beef!
How does alpaca taste?
We just had grass fed Katadin put in the freezer. Alpaca tastes almost exactly like that.
Whatever you use the most of. We use very little ground meat and prefer the chops and steaks. But my sister has 4 kids and they use way more ground meat. So whatever you would use the most is how you should have it done.
