Veal: Some people object to veal, the meat of baby calves, because of how the calves are treated. Calves have often been kept in small crates their whole lives, a practice that some say are necessary for disease control and in reducing injury to the calves, yet the American Veal Association announced it would end the practice of crating by 2017. A small girl from Berlin, Vt., grooms a four-week-old calf at the annual Vermont Farm Show in Barre, Vt., which features 200 exhibits, competitions, and special events.
