An experienced butcher can often tell the breed, age and sex of an animal just by the colour of its fat. The colour will also depend on what the animal ate during its life. For example, the fat in grass-fed beef may look more yellow than the fat in barley-fed beef, which is usually white. But this doesn't affect the eating quality you'll be pleased to learn. What is important is that the fat is firm and dry.
