As the title states, I was wondering if there is enough of a difference in veal (as compared to beef) for it to be worth feeding it. :confused:

Veal is just baby cow. A lot of people stay away from it because of how they are treated.

Nutritionally they shouldn't be all that different than normal beef. I guess I wouldn't turn it down if someone offered it to us :wink:

they are treated horrendously....'course, now i hear about rabbits held in cages where their feet don't touch the ground and chickens who are put into a room and by the time they are ready for slaughter, can barely breathe due to size constrictions...

that for some, free range means they have a two foot radius outside their cage...

personally, i would not give my dogs veal....unless you get a phenomenal price..right now, here --- veal retail is 14 dolla per pound....we don't even eat it, so none for the dogs, though they eat better than us. :)

I don't buy it unless it's been reduced for a quick sell.:biggrin: They get plenty of beef as it is and to me veal is beef just real young.:rolleyes:

I was just curious because I can get veal breasts for $1.09 a pound. I didn't know if it was worth it or not.

as long as you don't have a problem with your conscience, get them. veal is wonderful....wow. that's incredible.

here, it's 14.99 a pound
It's probably that much for a veal cutlet, as it is here too.

This cut of veal probably wouldn't be worth the price since it has a good amount of bone. I can get some beef head meat without bone for $1.31 a pound instead. :biggrin:

I would imagine so because bones of a young animal are always softer than they are as an adult. I would still be hesitant to feed weight bearing bones from baby cows since I am still hesitant to feed the weight bearing bones of a pig, which are probably close to the same size. Considering you have smaller dogs I wouldn't worry about it since they just don't have the jaw power to chomp on bones hard enough to break teeth, but there is still is a chance to break a tooth.

i wouldn't pass up on breast of bone...if it's a young cow, then the breast should be pretty porous, as natalie says...and the price is unbelievable...wow.

Yeah, the only thing is I'm a bit apprehensive about getting it. I just recently got that lamb breast and it was quite a bit of fat on it. I'm wondering if the veal would be the same way. :confused:

Basically, this is what the lamb breasts looked like (which are now all dismantled) except on the other side there was a covering of fat ranging from 1/2 inch to 1 inch thick. I got them from Harvest Meats and they came in a 30 pound box with 4 vacuum sealed packages, each containing 2 breasts.

I'll try and post a picture of the cut up breasts today...however I've trimmed off a good bit of the fat. I wanted it to be at least 50/50 meat and fat. :rolleyes:

i should think that veal is pretty fatty too.....but at the price you're getting it, IMO, worth the effort....not even sure i'd give it to the dogs LOL

How is it? And where did you get it from?
Exactly!

Considering a lot of other countries do not allow the importing of US beef and Mexico just recently rejected some beef that had a high Ca content. I'm not a huge fan of eating beef very often. I called the FDA & USDA and they do not have a lot of control over the process, birth through grocery store.

Seeing Veal at any price below $7 lb is shocking. I've hear of veal going for up to $14 lb.
