Calf care is a priority for farmers and there are many elements involved to ensure an animal is humanely treated. It starts with having a barn that is well ventilated, and one that keeps calves warm in the winter and comfortable in the summer.  It includes good nutrition and daily attention from the farmer to ensure the calves are healthy and thriving. Clean, comfortable facilities and good nutrition help prevent disease and sickness. If an animal does show signs of being sick, a veterinarian will be consulted.  If antibiotics are needed, withdrawal times are followed to ensure only safe product enters the food supply. Veal calves are never dehorned, tethered or castrated and hormone implants are prohibited by law in raising veal. Learn more about how veal calves are cared for responsibly in this short video.
