Lamb also has front, leg, loin, and flank primals like pork and beef. It also has four sub-primals: the shoulder, neck, foreshank, and breast. Butchers can cut lamb legs and offer them as a whole cut or extract the shank and lamb butt from it. The loin portion then contains lamb racks and ribs.

Lamb meat vs Sheep meat
Meat that comes from sheep varies depending on the age of the animal. Lamb is the meat of one around a year old, while mutton comes from an animal around three years old. Whichever you’re getting your portions from, you can choose from its five primal cuts: shoulder, breast, loin, leg, and rack.
