Meat Science Research

Some of the meats research is coordinated with other research projects, particularly in the breeding and nutrition areas, to increase information derived from those projects. The meats research efforts also address the needs of the Florida producer and meat industry with projects dealing with cow beef, quality of crossbred carcasses and meat processing.

The meats research program is consistently supported by grants from the Florida Beef Council, indicating the relevance of the research program to the state situation. The meats faculty participates in cooperative research with faculty at Florida A&M University and faculty in other departments and research and education centers.
