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!
Purdue Group Purchases
We give a 10% discount to all Purdue groups and student organizations when they purchase meat from us. This can be anything from a special picnic in your department to the weekly meals that are prepared in a Greek house. We will also accept an internal Purdue account number for the purchase.
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).

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is still working to complete the new section of US 231, and until they have all required measures in place, the new section of roadway will remain closed. INDOT urges individuals to stay off the closed road for their own safety. Barricades are in place and should be obeyed.
The Purdue University Police Department will be enforcing this closure, and individuals found on the closed section of roadway are subject to arrest for trespassing.
Acoustic testing will be taking place at Herrick Lab on Thursday, Jan. 17 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The testing will result in a loud roar of noise, similar to the sound of a waterfall, and noise levels may reach as high as 75 to 80 dB outside for about an hour in duration.
In order to properly facilitate the testing, S. Russell Street will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic between approximately 4 and 8 p.m.
