Chelev of a cow

undefined

Rabbi Jonathan Blass

14 Nisan 5763
Question
Shalom! I would like to know why chelev of cows is not permissible but if the cow has a new born - the chelev of the new born is permissible. Thanks
Answer
Chelev of animals is forbidden whatever their age. What is permitted is the chelev of an unborn calf found in the uterus of a slaughtered cow. This because the calf does not have an independent status of its own (Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 64 2).
