How do we call meat for buffalo, goat and sheep?


How do we call meat from buffalo, sheep and goat? I mean something like pork for pig meat.

Thank you very much.

Buffalo and goat have no special names. Sheep give us ‘lamb’ and ‘mutton’.

goat meat is not mutton?

Thank you very much, Mister Micawber. By the way, do ‘mutton’ and ‘lamb’ mean the same?

‘Lamb’ comes from the young animal; ‘mutton’ comes from the adult.

We often use the word “meat” after the name of the animal if there’s no special word for its meat. So you can say “buffalo meat”, or if it’s clear from the context that you’re talking about meat, you can just say “buffalo”.

we are eating roasted goat tonight at the party… hopefully it tastes good.

I love barbecued goat.
