Vegetarano ne manĝas bovan viandon, sed fragon.

why the downvote? this sentence is probably not the way it's usually said (-> bovaĵo), but there are certainly other ways to phrase it:

viando de bovo/bovino/gebovo(j)

bov-viando

bova viando

bova manĝaĵo

why not?

I didn't downvote him, but I might guess that he's being downvoted because he commented with a sentence that has no explanation for why he posted it, and thus it adds nothing to the discussion of this sentence.

Bova manĝaĵo sounds like cow food to me which I understamd as what cows eat.

Vi tute pravas, ĉar en normala Esperanto, ni ĉiam diras "bovaĵo"n aŭ "bova viando"-n
