So, I switched to lamb as my main red meat and animal fat instead of grassefed beef about 4 months ago thinking that it would be lower in environmental toxins because of the young age of the animal at culling.
Am I fooling myself? Does all the bad juju cross the placenta from mama sheep to baby sheep and make the point moot? And, if so, how many generations of clean pasture (if any truly exists) do you think it would it take to "dilute" the toxins?

You aren't fooling yourself. You may be overkilling it a little on toxin avoidance though. Grass fed animals have a much lower toxin load and they've got livers, which tend to remove a lot of this sort of stuff. What's the return on investment for going this far? The benefit is surely small, and may vanish completely depending on what other food choices you make.
