Approximately 70% of Canadian veal calves are raised as grain-fed veal. Under this production system the calves will receive milk replacement formula until they reach weaning age, when they will be switched to a grain ration. The majority of calves will be moved from their individual hutches to group pens (loose housing) that may hold as few as five and up to as many as sixty animals on some of the larger farms.
