Each year, the University of Arkansas Meats Quizbowl team travels to the annual Reciprocal Meats Conference (RMC) to compete in the Iron Chef and Quizbowl competitions. The 2015 RMC was held in Lincoln, NE.
Along the way the group toured a Hillshire Brand sausage plant in St. Joseph, MO; a Tyson beef slaughter plant and the BPI lean finely textured beef plant in Dakota City, NE; the Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center, NE; and Will Feed, Inc. feed yard in Cozad, NE. Some of the kids also toured the KState vet school and meat lab on the way home.
The 2016 Reciprocal Meats Conference will be hosted by Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX. The team has already started planning practices for next year. For more information about how to be a part of the meats quizbowl team, please contact Dr. Janeal Yancey at firstname.lastname@example.org
