meaning: raise meat vs. raise beef/pork

“Raise meat” means “raise cattle (or other animals?) to be slaughtered for their meat.” Can we say “raise beef” or “raise pork”?


Usually we have different names for animals and the meat produced from them. We raise cattle and pigs, and the final meat products are beef and pork respectively. To talk, in general, about raising unspecified animals for meat we can, however, say “raise meat”.

Pig or Pork? Cow or Beef?
