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).

On Thursday (Nov. 8), Physical Facilities experienced a significant data loss within the server that supports the project delivery environment. This includes and impacts most active capital, in-house, JOC, and small public works projects. This has resulted in a significant disruption to our normal business as the systems that support the storage and delivery of construction project information are out of service, and files and documents used to perform daily operations are currently inaccessible.
ITaP is working to resolve the issue as quickly and as carefully as possible to restore the systems. At this time it is anticipated that our systems should be restored early next week.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may be causing and appreciate your patience and flexibility at this time.

As we celebrate with family and friends during the holidays, it is important to keep in mind the children of our community who are less fortunate. The Fire Fighters of Purdue University are planning our fourth annual "Shop with a Firefighter" event. Last year, with the help of several local businesses, private donors, firefighters and co-workers, we were able to make the holidays a little brighter for a few local children. This year we are again asking for your help.
All donations will be divided among as many children as possible and will be spent at a local department store. The children will be paired with a firefighter that will accompany them as they shop. In the past we have had great success in our efforts to help these children enjoy the holidays. Shop with a Firefighter gives us an opportunity to brighten the holiday season by putting a smile on some very special children’s faces.
This year we have decided to partner with the American Red Cross, a United Way Agency. You can help bring joy to children by helping us raise money in three different ways this year. You can either donate money to our program, or we will be having two different fundraisers.
The first fundraiser will be held Monday, November 19 at Buffalo Wild Wings (West Lafayette location). During the event that day when you present them this ticket, 15% of your food bill will be donated to our Shop with a Firefighter program.
The second event will be held on Monday, November 26 at 9 Irish Brothers (West Lafayette location), from noon until 9 p.m. 9 Irish Brothers will be donating a portion of their proceeds to our Shop with a Firefighter program. Any contribution that you are able to make would be greatly appreciated.
Please send all donations by Wednesday, December 5 to the following location:
Attn: Shop with a Firefighter
1250 West 3rd St.
West Lafayette, IN 47907
Please make checks payable to: Purdue Firefighters
Thank you and happy holidays!
