Default Bison and Lamb - Benefits if Feeding Rarely?

My supermarket has boneless lamb (cubed for stew) and bison (steak medallions), both at $9.99lb. The lamb is usually packaged at just over a pound and the bison comes prepackaged in a box at a pound consisting of 2 8oz steaks. Unless I can find these at a cheaper price I will only be able to get one or the other maybe once or twice a month, I may be able to buy one one week and the other the next mattering on what else I'm buying that week. So basically if I split it up into like a lamb/turkey meal or a bison/turkey meal he would get maybe two or three meals a month of either lamb or bison mattering on how little I feed at each meal.

So, here are my questions for today. LOL

1. Have any of you fed bison?

2. Would Logan still benefit from them if it's fed so rarely? I'm thinking yes since it's going to be part of the variety over time, but was curiuos to see if you agreed with that.

3. Are there any meats that you feed this seldomly?

I finally ordered a freezer through Walmart this week. Due to budget and space limitations I had to go with a 5.5cu ft freezer, but supposedly it'll hold approx 195lb of meat so I should be able to work with it. It should be ready for pick up around the 20th so I'm going to start calling around for pricing this weekend.

Nope. Cant get my hands on it. I have priced it online and its way out of my budget for 5 dogs.

2. Would Logan still benefit from them if it's fed so rarely? I'm thinking yes since it's going to be part of the variety over time, but was curiuos to see if you agreed with that.

Your thoughts are correct Its balanced over time.

3. Are there any meats that you feed this seldomly?

I feed rabbit only once per week as it also isnt cheap. I currently pay $4.50lb for whole dressed rabbit. It costs me $45 to feed this just one day!!

LOL - I just feel like I'm just asking question after question here lately, but it really is all a learning process for me. I just really want to make sure I'm doing this right.

Good to know that he'll still benefit from lamb and bison even if fed rarely. I think I'll start picking some up now so when it's time to start introducing new proteins I'll have some on hand. Is bison around the $9.99lb mark in your area too? I can't believe how expensive some meats are. Hopefully I'll be able to find cheaper sources now that I'll be able to buy in bulk.

I just looked at ground lamb in the grocery store and it was $9.99 for 500grams!! Ya thats not gonna happen! Bison was way more than that. There is actually a huge Bison farm about an hour from me, I might have to email them to see if I can get any scraps.

Well, lamb is pretty much the same here. At least bison's a bit cheaper apparently. I hope you get a deal from the farm! I'm anxious to start making phone calls now so I can start really planning and saving.
