Veal is the meat produced from dairy calves weighing less than 70kg or beef calves (vealers/weaners) weighing up to 150kg.
Being one of the most efficient producers of cattle, Australia is also world renowned for Veal Production.

Raising Australian Veal
Veal can be produced from a calf of either sex, but mostly comes from male calves as they do not lactate.
Newborn veal calves are generally given only a limited amount of time with their mothers, which can be anywhere between a few hours and a few days.
Free-raised calves are sometimes raised alongside their mothers, and always have access to their mothers' milk.More on Farming
