THE overseas market for British calves could develop and grow in
the medium term as veal production in Europe is likely to fall.
British farmers have been able to move back into this market since
the export ban was lifted earlier this year and things have changed
dramatically in the last ten years they were absent.
There has been a fundamental change in production systems as producers
gear up for changes in EU legislation which come into effect at the
end of this year.
Calves are now housed in groups in well-lit accommodation with sophisticated
electronic feeding systems and controlled ventilation.
This assessment of veal production and the opportunities for British
farmers is just one of the major articles in the latest issue of
Meat Demand Trends, produced by the Meat and Livestock Commission's
The latest issue also takes a good look at the nutritional standards
for school meal in England.
Economic indicators, retail meat and producer prices together with
expenditure and meat consumption are also included giving a comprehensive
overview of red meat production.
