Natura Veal

Veal from suckler cow husbandry, that is what Natura Veal stands for. To meet the exacting demands, the meat must exhibit a rose or calf-red colour and have a fine-fibred texture. Beef cattle breeds guarantee excellent meat quality. Based on environment-  and animal-friendly meat production, this label program stipulates comprehensive husbandry and feeding regulations.

 

Natural Husbandry

Calves are reared together with their mother cows; every day the animals are free to roam and thus use meadows and pastures in an extensive way. Directly after being weaned, calves are slaughtered at the age of about 5 months.

 

Natural Feeding

Feeding predominantly consists of suckler cows’ milk, with grass, hay and cereal products later on. No growth-enhancing additives, animal proteins or fats, or genetically modified feedstuffs may be used.

 

Natura-Veal Guaranteed

Natura-Veal is a label program of Suckler Cow Switzerland. Farms are regularly inspected by beef control or Swiss Animal Protection.

 

 

Suckler Cow Switzerland issues certificates that guarantee the compliance with Natura Veal standards for every animal as to its age, origin, method of husbandry and feeding.
