Is my grocery store's Australian-sourced lamb a good source for bone broth and animal fat?

This question is more about playing the odds. My local grocery store sells various cuts of lamb, all marked as being raised in Australia.

So, what are the odds that this lamb is pastured? If the odds are good, does that mean that the lamb is my best local-grocery-store source for bone-broths?

Could/should I render lamb tallow from this lamb for consumption (of course this hinges on the likelihood that the lamb is largely/fully pastured)?

(There are no other pastured animal products at this particular grocery store.)

I don't watch commercial TV so I cant say I have seen it. Try using really fresh, big mushrooms for burger buns. Awweeeesome!

its actually not too expensive for some of the cuts too :) we get lamb mince for only $10/kilo at Coles which makes for amazing burgers (no bread of course). Not that I like Coles at the moment with that god-awful commercial ruining Petula Clark's "Downtown" ... *sigh**

I believe the odds are extremely high that the lamb is pastured. I am in Aus and I have asked several butchers and they have all said that the lamb is grass fed. I have never heard of CAFO's here. Aus lamb is fantastic.

I have a friend in ag science who has advised me previously that we Aussies don't have the crazy CAFOs like the US for beef or lamb, so it's good odds that you'll be OK.
