Danish Veal are proud to officially bear the ”Better Animal Welfare” label. This aptly named label was created in 2017 to improve animal welfare for as many production animals as possible. It was developed by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration in close collaboration with relevant stakeholders in the commercial food chain and is based on market driven principles.
Products sold under the label are subject to annual state control and state authorized controls. This includes control of all herds produced under the label and control of all animals at slaughterhouses. Hatcheries, farmers, companies, and retail and foodservice businesses must all have their own control programme that ensures and documents traceability and separation of labelled products from other products. These control programmes are subject to state control.
We also give them more space than the minimum requirements.
We believe in giving our calves a great start in life with better stable conditions than regular calves.
Roughage is particularly important as it encourages the natural development of a calf’s stomach’s ability to chew cud.
