  Master Meat Crafters Program

Graduates Another Class
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/21/2014

A group of 21 state meat processors have graduated as participants of the Master Meat Crafter Training Program, which is a one-of-a-kind initiative run by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture. The program aims to provide students with in-depth and comprehensive knowledge about meat science and processing principles, while developing opportunities for future meat industry leaders and help ensure the nation's meat industry remains strong and viable for years to come.

To finish the program, the graduates needed to complete four program elements including workshops, targeted homework assignments, a mentorship program, and a plant project. The program took two years to complete.

"Congratulations to all the Master Meat Crafters for their commitment to developing and perfecting their skills," said State Agriculture Secretary Ben Brancel. "The breadth of projects completed by these graduates will benefit not only their individual meat businesses but the entire specialty meats industry."

Wisconsin's Master Meat Crafters include:
