Is "gamey" really such a bad thing?

Tasty stuff in my view. Here in France our local farmer divides all his calves by sex and the girls stay on his farm and the boys all go to his son's farm to be raised for veal. Unfortunately as far as I'm aware the specifically dairy farms don't necessarily have that luxury and the male calves are merely wasted as too expensive to feed. However I am wandering from the point. All I can say is I have never tasted veal with a gamey flavour nor have I ever found well hung beef taking on a gamey flavour. I suppose that doesn't mean it doesn't exist just that I have never tasted it in 60 odd years.

Yes jayt90 that was my point, though badly put I'll admit. The senseless slaughter to which I referred was the waste of good prospective veal by killing male calves at birth just because they're male.

Rose veal is differently raised, tastes different and obviates the senseless slaughter of male calves for economic reasons. Gamey though? I doubt it,
