Veal

While Veal has declined in popularity at Fairs, it is still a part of agriculture and gaining popularity in up-scale restaurants, and we still offer it as a 4-H Project in Manistee County.

Youth, ages 5 to 19, are eligible to show and market* Veal Calves with 4-H at the Manistee County Fair.

*The current rules, under the by-laws of the Manistee County 4-H Livestock Council, state that all 4-H participants MUST complete one year of SHOWMANSHIP ONLY before they can market an animal. Cloverbud years DO count towards this requirement.

No 4-Her may market ANY animal until 4-H age 8.

Possession Dates & Minimum/Maximum Weights

Veal calves must be between six (6) to twelve (12) weeks old as of CHECK-IN Day of Fair..

Minimum market weight for Veal calves is 200 pounds, maximum weight is 350 pounds, as of CHECK-IN Day of Fair.

 

Calves weighing over 350 pounds will be marketed at Auction at 350 pounds.

Purchase or Proof of Origin MUST be provided for ALL Livestock Animals.
