What is Veal ?
Veal is the meat from a calf or young beef animal. A calf is a young bovine of either sex that has not reached puberty (up to about 9 months of age). All veal, regardless of breed or sex, is sourced from bovine calves. There are 3 primary types of veal - special fed, grain fed or pasture raised and bob veal. The age and market weight of the veal calf will vary by type. Male dairy calves typically supply the veal industry. Dairy cows give birth at least once a year to continue producing milk, and the male offspring typically move to veal farms where they are raised for meat production.
