Most of our meat comes from right here at Purdue. We raise cattle, swine, sheep, and poultry just west of town at our Purdue Animal Sciences farm. The animals are bred, fed, harvested, and processed by Purdue students and staff to bring you fresh, high-quality, locally-grown meat. Look for the labels “Locally Grown” to know you are eating meat raised right here.
We age our beef in the cooler for an average of 14 days before it is cut, packaged, and available for sale to you. The extra time spent aging causes our steaks and roasts to be more tender and have a stronger flavor than what you would find at a common supermarket. Try it, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Proceeds from our meat sales go towards offsetting the costs of educating Purdue students about the food animal industry. These expenses include the cost of animals, staff, and equipment. We are the only functioning university meat lab in the state of Indiana, and we feel it is important to educate our future leaders on the production of safe, high-quality meat to feed our growing world. When you purchase meat from the Boilermaker Butcher Block, you are getting a great product and supporting a great endeavor!
Located in Smith Hall, Room 170, the Butcher Block is open from 2 – 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Butcher Block accepts credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard & Discover).

Thank you to those that attended the Fall Building Deputy meeting and gave us the feedback that we need to improve our services.
The 2012 Fall Building Deputy Meeting presentation can be found at http://www.purdue.edu/buildings_grounds/resources/Fall_2012_Building%20Deputy_web.pdf.
Ted Weidner joined the Physical Facilities organization as the Senior Director of Project Management and Construction on October 29. Ted plans to schedule meetings early next year with building deputies to discuss service and responsiveness improvements, but if a building deputy would like to meet sooner than that, they are encouraged to contact Ted using the information provided below. Ted believes that developing and maintaining clear open channels of communication is important if PM&C is to be a true service organization in support of Purdue's goals.
Ted brings an impressive background in the facilities management field to his new role at Purdue. Having worked in higher education facilities since 1982 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Illinois State University, Eastern Illinois University, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ted has overseen construction projects ranging from roof replacements to nanotechnology, semiconductor and BL3 labs.
Ted earned a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is a registered architect, professional engineer and a Fellow in the American Society of Civil Engineering where he has held several offices at the local level. In 2009, he received APPA’s Award for Meritorious Service.
