Beef, pork, and lamb—they’re more than what’s for dinner. At Virginia Tech’s Meat Science Center, the products are part of a partnership of learning that connects students with the community. A fully equipped meat processing program with classroom, production, and retail experiences, the center is associated with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' animal and poultry sciences department. Between 10 and 15 undergraduate students and a graduate assistant coordinate operations each academic year.
