When we work up to the 'other meat' stage of our diet, is Oxtail alright?
My local butcher had a lot of it.

They were so helpful with chicken necks and leg quarters! I got 6 large leg quarters and 3 huge containers of chicken necks (for Jack) for $10.00.

:)

Oxtail is fine to feed. I don't feed it to my dogs as it is real grisly and very bony.

We don't feed it either...I can find better things for the same price around here. If you can find more suitable things I would stick to those instead of this. Variety is good, but you don't want to add in things that aren't all that great...

Hmm, I like oxtail. It is kind of expensive though at Walmart so I only buy it occasionally when it's yellow-tagged.

Oxtail isn't on my list of meats I go looking for, but if I see it marked way down, I pick some up.
Usually it's in the $2.50/lb range, which I will not pay, as I'd rather pick up something like lamb for that, but once it's under a buck, I'll buy just about anything. lol

Oxtail's great. Well we use beef tails(are cows and ox the same thing....they aren't right?)

no problems.

Ox tail is the same thing as cow tail. Oxen are generally cattle used for pulling carts but I imagine the "ox tail" label for the meat is just a way to make it sound fancy.
