AMSA RMC logoOn June 15, meat scientists from across the country will be taking over America's Dairyland in Madison, Wisconsin for the premier meat science meeting of the summer and to celebrate American Meat Science Association’s (AMSA) 50th birthday. The University of Wisconsin and Kraft Foods Inc./Oscar Mayerare excited to host the AMSA 67th Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC), that will be held June 15-18.

The AMSA 67th RMC will kick off at the beautiful Monona Terrace with a special session featuring AMSA past presidents. These champions of meat science will share in the experiences of leading the association as they recount the key achievements that have shaped AMSA. This leads into a powerful keynote presentation by Jayson Lusk, professor and the Willard Sparks Endowed Chair in the Agricultural Economics department at Oklahoma State University over “The Food Police: A Well-Fed Manifesto about the Politics of Your Plate.” Concurrent and reciprocation sessions will follow to engage attendees and create discussion on a variety of topics important to our industry.

The RMC planning committee has created something a little different to wrap up the AMSA 67th RMC.  Past RMC attendees expressed the need for more hands-on specialized training, so we are excited to announce six new extended sessions that attendees can choose from.  These include: culinary aspects of product research and development; processed meats evaluation; media training for scientists; basic science and technical writing; research priorities for meat science funding and a hot topics session.
