Plans Put in Place

With tremendous help from the University of Wisconsin Meat Science Advisory Committee and the University of Wisconsin Foundation, a grassroots campaign was started to provide world-class, program changing meat science facilities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison,  The plan would be to 1) secure State of Wisconsin funding for over 50% of the project through approval in a state biennial budget, 2) get approval to construct by the University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of Wisconsin System by ranking at the top of “new facility” projects, and 3) secure non-state/federal private matching dollars ($20 million) to provide the remaining necessary funding for the $42.8 million project cost.
