Q : What is a veal calf ?

 

A : Veal calves are the male calves from a dairy herd .Cows need to have a calf so as to produce milk.

Some are kept for breeding purposes,others slaughtered at birth. Unless they are reared for Veal.

 

Q : Aren`t veal calves kept in crates ?

 

A : Crates which restrict the movement of calves has been illegal in the U.K. since 1990, and has recently been banned in the E.U. Veal had a bad reputation in the past,where the calves were kept in horendous conditions.THIS IS NOW NOT THE CASE.

 

Q : Isn`t it cruel to eat such young animals ?

 

A : Our calves are reared to between 5 and 6 months of age. This is older than most pork and lamb,and certainly much older than any chicken in the supermarkets. The idea that veal is from younger animals than most meat on the market couldn`t be further from the truth.
