Nominations Due Nov. 1 for Meat Industry Hall of Fame

Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame recognizes members of meat industry.

Nominations are being sought for a new round of inductees into the Meat Industry Hall of Fame.

Wisconsin is the obvious place for a program that honors leaders in the meat industry, says Elton Aberle, animal scientist and former dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Meat companies that started here are household names around the world, and meats and sausages produced in Wisconsin continue to rank among the world's best, he notes.

The Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame was started to recognize individuals who have had a significant impact on the state's meat industry. Each year, a committee of academic and industry leaders in the field solicits nominations for honorees.

Since the hall was created in 1993, 62 honorees have been inducted. Every aspect of the meat industry is represented, including scientists, policymakers, professors, equipment suppliers and both large and small processing operations.

And now it's time to select the Class of 2009. To nominate an individual or group for induction into the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame, please send the following information to Elton Aberle ([email protected]), 227 Meat Science and Muscle Biology, 1805 Linden Drive, Madison, WI 53706-1181 by November 1, 2009:

* The name(s) of the nominee(s)
* A short bio of the nominee(s)
* A brief statement (no more than one typed page, please) describing the nominee(s)' accomplishments and how these accomplishments have impacted the Wisconsin meat industry

As the committee may need additional information during the decision process, please include your contact information, along with a short list of other people to contact for further information. Nominations must be received by Nov. 1 to be considered for the Class of 2009.
