Meat

The UW-River Falls Meat Pilot Plant offers all the benefits of full-scale plant production but on a smaller scale. The pilot plant is a state-licensed meat facility located in the Food Science Addition, part of the Agricultural Science complex. The purpose of the plant is to support our teaching and outreach activities. A limited amount of product is available for purchase through our Falcon Foods Store in the Food Science Addition as well as Freddy's C-Store in the University Center. 

The Meat Pilot Plant is run by six to eight undergraduates primarily from CAFES under the supervision of the plant manager. Students gain hands-on experience, learning the many aspects of the meat industry including harvesting, fabricating, and value-added processing of meat products. Our students also play a role in maintaining high manufacturing standards focused on food safety and quality assurance.
