Outreach to the WI and USA meat industry is a long and cherished tradition at the Meat Science Laboratory.  Whether it was finding the cause and solution to PSE,  improving food safety by helping to define HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) or developing extension programs like “Meat for Modern Living”, UW faculty and staff support the Meat Industry and consumers. Modern programs like Master Meat Crafters continuation this tradition – training forward-thinking professionals in today’s meat industry to grow their businesses and create new artisan products.

The state-of-the-art facility will enable the Meat Extension program to continue to train meat science professionals in facilities relevant to the meat industry and inspire advancements in meat production.
