The new veal is raised humanely, more flavorful, and commanding a premium price for small farmers.
I call that a win. About several years back I switched to many organic products- milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables, meat when I can get it, and I have no tlooked back. Yes, it is more expensive. But there really is no comparison when it comes to the quality and flavor, and there is something to be said about knowing there is not a bunch of crap in your food.
