About

The Meat Science program from The Ohio State University combines animal science and food science in the evaluation of the impact of genetic selection and nutritional regimens coupled with various management strategies on the growth and development of animal tissues (muscle, adipose and bone). 

Overview

Meat science is a field of study that combines the basic principles of science (genetics, nutrition, physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, economics and marketing) and senses (taste, smell, sight, touch and sound). The field further investigates the postmortem conversion of muscle to meat followed by further processing and product development to ultimately provide consumers with muscle food products that deliver a wholesome, nutritious and desirable eating experience. 

In addition to learning the basic principles of science, students in the major also acquire a broad understanding of the factors that affect livestock operations and resulting fresh meat quality, as well as a basic understanding of processing plant operations (food safety and quality assurance) and marketing. 

Possible careers

Students of the Meat Science program from The Ohio State University are prepared for a variety of careers in science, business and production agriculture. For example, graduates find employment in meat science/food processing organizations, government agencies (USDA FSIS, food safety and inspection; USDA AMS, meat grading and certification), research laboratories, biotechnical industries, chemical/pharmaceutical companies, genetics and nutrition companies, and allied industry associations.
