Raw meat usually lasts for around three days in the refrigerator. If you plan to keep uncooked meat longer, it is better to freeze it. Seal the meat in an airtight package before freezing and you can store it for several months.
For safe freezing it is important to keep your fridge at a certain temperature. Keep your freezer below 0°F (-17.8°C) to helps retain nutrients and keep food fresh. For your refrigerator a temperature around 34°F (1.1°C) is recommended to prolong the shelf life of foods.
