Venison vs. Veal

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Venison and Veal is that the Venison is a meat from deer and Veal is a meat of young cattle.

  • Venison

    Venison is the meat of a game animal and especially a deer. Venison can be used to refer to any part of the animal, so long as it can be consumed, including the flesh and internal organs. Venison, much like beef or

    pork, is categorized into specific cuts, including roast, sirloin, and ribs.

  • Veal

    Veal is the meat of calves, in contrast to the beef from older cattle. Veal can be produced from a calf of either sex and any breed; however, most veal comes from young males of dairy breeds who are not used for breeding. Generally, veal is more expensive than beef from older cattle.

    Some methods or aspects of veal production are controversial due to animal welfare concerns.
