The College of Agricultural & Life Sciences teamed up with the School of Human Ecology to generate concepts and ideas for a new Bucky’s Butchery retail shop. Bucky’s Butchery is a growing interest both on campus and in the Madison community. This aspect of the future Meat Science building is a key tool in getting the general public involved with Meat Science.
Students from Design, Retail, Animal Science, Food Science, backgrounds gathered together for a full-day workshop covering all aspects of the butchery. Areas of interest include marketing strategies, branding, product development, and retail store configuration. The ideas generated from the Bucky’s Butchery design charrette have been key in helping the Architecture & Engineering team successfully create this component of the new meat lab.
