Storing cooking fats

I googled 'do I need to refrigerate tallow' and got this response: 

Tallow does not need to be refrigerated and can last a year or longer. I would not worry greatly about decomposition, but oxidation can be a problem. Make sure to store it in an airtight container and you shouldn't have a problem.

and how about lamb lard?

 

Probably the same as the tallow. Should be fine at room temperature. If you're concerned, it wouldn't hurt it to put it in the fridge, but it might get hard enough to be hard to use.
