State laws are not necessary because veal crates are no longer the industry practice for milk-fed veal. Veal farmers have transitioned from individual stalls to group pens. Farmers continue to innovate and improve group housing, and generally ensure that veal calves are moved to group pens within a couple weeks of age. The pens allow the calves to stand, stretch, lie down, groom themselves and socialize with other calves.
