The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) is partnering with the North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP) on its flagship Center of the Plate (COP) Training Course, to be held at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, May 3-5, 2011.  AMI members will receive a discounted members-only registration fee. 

Other co-hosts include National Meat Association (NMA) and Southwest Meat Association (SMA).

This is the most in-depth Center of the Plate course offered, and will cover beef, pork, lamb, veal and poultry.

Steve Olson, NAMP’s standards and specification advisor and former United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Meat Specialist, will provide students with invaluable information on meat specifications, quality parameters and muscle utilization. 

The course is sponsored by the Beef Checkoff, the Pork Checkoff, and the Lamb Checkoff, who will have representatives on hand to present information and resources to attendees. Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health is a corporate sponsor of the class.
