All meats not beef: see their names

We all hear people or even ourselves call every meat beef because we all don’t know the different names—or don’t bother—and that’s cool. But it’s not so cool when you must identify them for specific purposes, and that’s when it becomes embarrassing.

Here are the common kinds of meat we eat:


Animal Meat name
Cattle (cow or bull) Beef
Calf (young cow) Veal
Pig Pork, Ham,  Bacon (in small pieces, treated with smoke or salt)
Pigeon Squab
Sheep (ram or ewe) Mutton
Young sheep Lamb
Deer Venison
Goat Chevon
Turkey Turkey
Chicken Chicken
Water Buffalo Carabeef
Crab Crab/Crabmeat
Horse Horseflesh
Wild animals Bushmeat

Hope these provide some help.
