Tether-Free – Born and raised in the U.S. by family farmers, our Group Raised Veal calves are never tethered or crated, never administered growth hormones and are finished in a group environment. This allows the freedom of movement and the ability to develop natural behaviors, dramatically reducing stress on the calves and improving their health and comfort. In December, 2008 Strauss became the first veal producer in the nation to raise 100% of our veal calves in a tether-free, group raised environment, a full nine years ahead of the industry deadline.
Group Raised – Group raising allows the animals freedom of movement and the ability to develop instinctual socialization and herding behaviors. We believe that a tether-free, group-raised environment dramatically reduces stress on the calves and improves their overall health, producing delicious, tender veal.
Formula & Forage-Fed – The term “special-fed” veal is a USDA classification used to describe modern day veal calves that are derived from the dairy industry and fed a special formula or milk-replacer. In contrast, Strauss Group Raised Veal incorporates natural forage to aid in the development and health of our calves, resulting in pinker veal.
