Small meat lexicon

The various types

There are different kinds of beef which bear the seal of quality. They include veal from young calves as well as beef from adult cattle.
You can buy high-quality South Tyrolean meat from the following animals:
  • Milk veal: less than 8 months old
  • Young steer: 8 to 12 months old 
  • Bullock: up to 36 months old
  • Heifer: up to 36 months old
  • Young cow: up to 36 months old
Tip: how to cut meat
The meat should always be cut across the fibers (at a right angle). This stops the meat from falling apart. It also loses far less of its hape and size during cooking.
