By definition, lard is pork fat, and in that case, it is absolutely haram (forbidden).
Alternatives of lards can be anything which is taken from fat or tallow, beef, sheep or camel fat. Such lard/fats will become halal on the condition if slaughtered through Islamic way.
If lards is found in food ingredients, then make sure that it is not taken from pigs or animals which are slaughtered through un-Islamic ways.
Also needs to be careful and do the proper checks if the following are found.
