Veal calves are raised in group pens where they can stand, stretch, lie down, groom themselves and socialize with other calves. They're not raised with tethers or in crates. While veal barns can vary from state to state, providing calves with humane treatment and comfortable pens are a priority for farmers. In this video, veterinarian Marissa Hake along with two veal farmers talk about how veal calves are raised. You can clearly see there are no crates or tethers.
