4-H Meat Science Workshop Comes to Christian County

One University of Illinois Extension program has made a big splash in multiple area counties and will soon be coming to the Christian County Extension Office for all youth, ages 8 to 18. The 4-H Meat Science Workshop will educate local young people about cuts of meat, evaluation of the carcass, and preparation, which will conclude with a taste test of the freshly cooked meat.

The Meat Science Workshop will be held on Saturday, April 27th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Christian County Extension Office.

Taylor Pope, 4-H Youth Development Coordinator is excited for this program to be coming to Christian County.


Sara Marten, County Director, says a University of Illinois Meat Science professional will be on hand providing education at the class.


Registration for this workshop is due by April 19th and the information can be found at extension.illinois.edu/cjmm, then searching “Meat Science Workshop”.
The Christian County Extension Office is located at 1120 North Webster Street in Taylorville.

Taylor Pope and Sara Marten appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
