The WTAMU Meat Laboratory (USDA Est. # 7124) is a teaching and research facility dedicated to the transfer of knowledge in the conversion of muscle to meat. 

The Meat Laboratory consists of 4,550 square feet housing a harvest floor, a hot carcass cooler, an aging cooler, a fabrication floor, a test kitchen, a smokehouse, and a retail sales area.

Students are allowed opportunities to harvest, fabricate, and produce further-processed and value-added meat products from beef, pork, and lamb.
