Veal meat is another category of meat deriving from bovine. Bovine is the technical name for beef, cows and cattle. Veal is processed from the youngest cattle aging to around 20 weeks, but in some countries it can be even older, and also as young as only days old. Weights ranging from around 30kg up to 250kg and again, in some countries, mainly European, even heavier. As a butcher I tend to believe that any carcass heavier than 250kg is tending towards baby beef and leaving the veal categorization. But this is my opinion only. Continue reading →

Vacuum Packing Meat Benefits – A Great Idea

When I was butchering we used our vacuum packing machine every day. We used a commercial grade chamber vac machine that was manufactured in Germany and cost well into the thousands of dollars. A lot of money some 25 years ago. In those days it was hard to find a good local brand in Australia, and to think of it, I don’t even think we had a manufacturer in Australia at that time. Germany was, and is still well known for building quality machinery but now you can get vacuum machines that are manufactured in many countries.  Continue reading →
