In this portion of the EXCEL Beef Plant tour, students will begin in the coolers to learn the role of a federal meat grader in determining Choice and Prime-grade carcasses. Then, move to the disassembly process on the fabrication floor as a highly skilled team of workers and ergonomically designed machines work together to process 8,000 sides of beef into "boxed beef" at a rate of more than 100,000 pounds per hour. Watch as the carcass is fabricated into primal and sub-primal cuts— an excellent lesson in beef cut identification in itself. Also view the transformation of beef by-products into usable and saleable items. A supplement is included. Collaborator: Ken Moloenhaver, Excel Beef Facility.
