Two long-term fixtures of the Rosenthal Meat Center, Ray Riley and the nationally recognized Texas Aggie Brand Beef Jerky, were featured on the CBS Sunday Morning program on January 18, 2015. The segment was entitled Beef Jerky: Not Just a Gas Station Staple and showed footage of Ray and the Rosenthal Meat Center staff and students making jerky and Ray discussing the history of beef jerky at Texas A&M University. Texas Aggie Brand Beef Jerky burst on the national scene in 2007 when the New York Times did the feature story, For Epicures, A New Take on Jerky.
As might be expected, jerky sales at the Rosenthal Meat Center have gone through the roof with shipments going around the country. We hope that first-time customers will fall in love with Texas Aggie Brand Beef Jerky and keep coming back for a taste of Aggieland.
