The 16th Annual Monticello Society Brunch was held April 16, 2016, in the Poehlmann Educational Center at Bradford Research Center.
Meat Science doctoral student Katy Shircliff shared with the crowd an overview of the teaching, research and extension activities of the meat science program and the successes of the Meats Judging Team. Shircliff has led the Meats Judging Team for the past five years, and is very passionate about the experiences and opportunities members gain from being a part of the team. The team recently took fifth overall at the National Western Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest, second overall at the Iowa State Invitational and first place at the Southeastern conference hosted by Ohio State and the University of Kentucky.
We invite you to become a part of CAFNR’s exceptional group of dedicated alumni and friends who have an impact on the ability of our College to achieve the highest levels of excellence by joining our Monticello Society.
Katy Shircliff, Monticello Society Brunch speaker and MU Meat Judging Team coach, works closely with meat science professor Bryon Wiegand on research focusing on meat quality, color, tenderness and shelf-life.
