    For example:
    I love cow's meat.
    I love cow meat.

    Thank you

    Re: cow meat / cow's meat

    Thanks for answering but what if we say "deer" instead of "cow"?

    I mean,

    I love deer meat.
    I love deer's meat.

    I love venison. (Note: that statement is not true!)

    Re: cow meat / cow's meat

    What if there is no word to mean a meat of a specific animal?

    Re: cow meat / cow's meat

    I suggest you Google "[name of animal] meat" and see how long it takes you to find one that doesn't have a name. Obviously, this only applies to animals which are generally eaten. I am not suggesting that you will find a word for the flesh of an elephant when used as a foodstuff.

    One you could use is "goat meat". I would not use the possessive form (goat's).

    You could but in BrE, that's "mutton".
