You and your students are invited to a Meats Training practice (please complete the online registration form) at UGA Animal & Dairy Science Building, Meats Lab (425 River Road, Athens, GA 30602) on Saturday, August 14th, 2010 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm (we will break for lunch at noon). New in 2010-2011 School year: each area will have Area Meats Elimination CDE's. This is a great opportunity for you & your students to get started in the right direction for this CDE.
As you know with livestock / meats contests - it is best to work when the product is available - there will be several beef carcasses / pork carcasses for practice/ training purposes. Many thanks to Dr. Pringle, Dr. Stelzleni & grad students who have offered to conduct this training for Ag Education!
