Regardless of the purpose of the proposed equipment (e.g. documenting the progress of construction project, enhanced safety and security), all requests of this nature should be directed to Carol as the single point of contact. Carol will then coordinate subsequent discussions as appropriate.

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 Wood Street Parking Garage elevator is out of service, and while the Operations and Maintenance staff are aware of the problem, they currently do not have an estimated repair time.
Most reserved/handicap spaces are on the lowest level of the garage, but those who count on the elevator are advised to park in the Grant Street Parking Garage until the repair is complete.
