Summary: Comparative evaluation of meat characteristics of beef carcasses, beef primal cuts, pork carcasses, pork primal cuts, and lamb carcasses. Federal grade standards for beef carcass and application of USDA Institutional Meat Purchase Specifications.

  • ASCI 300D: Principles of Meat Animal Evaluation (1 cr)

Summary: Further develop student expertise in breeding animal, market animal, and carcass evaluation as well as live animal and carcass grading and pricing.

  • ASCI 400A: Advanced Meat Grading & Evaluation (2 cr)

Summary: Comparative evaluation of the meat characteristics of beef, pork, and lamb that affect product merit and the scientific basis of the factors that influence the relative value. Federal meat grades and their application, industry grading system and their application, and application of Institutional Meat Purchase Specifications.
