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).

Initiated in 2003, the Maps and Records GIS (geographic information system) page provides employees with an index of GIS resources at Purdue, community, state and national levels and continues to adapt to meet customer needs.
To acknowledge the 10 year anniversary of the page and to address changes to standards and information, some notable updates have been made to both the GIS page and the services and resources offered by the group.
Below is a brief summary of major updates:
File Name Change
The file name of the GIS page has been changed to file:\\g:\gis\gis.html or file:\\itifs11\pfproj\gis\gis.html. This change reflects a move to a more broadly supported format that is commonly used across platforms. It also sets the stage for future improvements.
Please report any broken links to Keith Paris at email@example.com.
Bible plans (formerly located in G:\library\) have been replaced by floor plans. PDF versions of the floor plans are updated quarterly and available through the GIS page.
CAD versions of the floor plans are located at file:\\G:\Library\Floorplans\WLAF_DGN\. The new floor plan files are structured differently and are comprised of two models:
Please contact Dean Romack at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding floor plans.
GIS Group Services
Over the last two years, the GIS group has been transitioning from a CAD (Bentley) environment to a GIS (ESRI) environment. This move offers the ability to provide different products and services in the future. As the transition to the new environment comes to an end, the evaluation and cleaning of datasets will be taking place to allow for the further assessment and development of products and services.
In the meantime, the GIS group continues to provide the following services:
One of the services being phased out includes the printing of multiple sets of multi-page, large-format plots. Instead, customers will be provided with electronic files that can be taken to Printing Services, which will coordinate the duplication. As new services evolve, other existing services will be evaluated, taking into account the needs of our customers and staff.
Please contact Keith Paris at email@example.com with any questions or concerns regarding service changes.
