The males serve no purpose on a dairy farm and are transported to veal calf farms between the ages of two and four weeks. On arrival the calves weigh about 45 kilos, but after seven months this will have risen to six times as much. During those seven months each animal is fed 200 kilos of maize, 120 kilos of dry food, 20 kilos of straw and 350 kilos of powdered milk, much of which consists of whey, a waste product of the milk and cheese industry.Klopman produces ‘white’ meat.
