The April 2015 issue of Meat & Poultry Magazine features an article titled “Aggie-Style meat education” and highlights industry education offered through workshops, courses and camps hosted by the meat science section in the Department of Animal Science.
Writer Kimberlie Clyma writes, “In 1989, the Texas Beef Council was looking for a way to educate its staff about the beef industry. The council was responsible for marketing beef, but many members of the staff didn’t really understand the process of how beef got from farm to fork. It approached Texas A&M University, which is know as having one of the country’s top meat science collegiate programs, and requested a special program to educate its staff on the basics of the beef industry — and Beef 101 was born.”
