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).

Physical Facilities Fiscal Affairs has issued the following memo describing the procedure to be followed by essential employees to obtain food and lodging from the Purdue Memorial Union in the event of a snow or severe weather emergency: Snow or Severe Weather Procedure
The text of the memo appears here for your convenience:
November 29, 2012
To: Physical Facilities Senior Directors, Directors, Managers, Department Heads and Supervisors
From: Pam Staggs, Physical Facilities Fiscal Affairs
Re: Snow Emergency or Severe Weather Emergency Procedures for Obtaining Food and Lodging from the Purdue Memorial Union.
In order to receive food and lodging from the Purdue Memorial Union (PMU) during a snow emergency, essential employees, must obtain a snow emergency card from their supervisor. The snow emergency cards will be Green (same as last year) for the 2012-2013 winter season. The cards will be used in the same manner as previous years, and the procedures for use of the cards are as follows:
The cards will be issued to essential employees by their appropriate supervisor. Non-essential employees are not eligible for reimbursement for food and lodging.
The cards are to be used only during University-declared snow emergencies or other weather emergencies that would include a University closure.
The snow emergency cards are for use at Pappy’s and the Sagamore Room (if open) in the Purdue Memorial Union, valued up to $12.00 per meal. One card per employee per weather emergency incident will be issued by the Supervisor. Below is the process to follow when using the snow emergency card:
- The staff member will show his/her Purdue ID card, Snow Emergency Card and inform the cashier that his/her meal should be charged on the Physical Facilities PMU account.
- The PMU cashier will ring up the sale and charge the Physical Facilities PMU charge card at the register. The cashier must obtain the staff member’s signature or printed name on the receipt.
- The signed receipt is to be kept by the PMU cashier and turned in with the cash deposit at the end of his/her shift. (Physical Facilities will be responsible for ONLY those charges that are accompanied with a signed receipt.)
- The essential employee using these cards must complete the reverse side of the card and return it to his/her supervisor along with the meal receipts. At the end of the weather emergency, the supervisor will return used cards to Pam Staggs in Physical Facilities Fiscal Affairs, FREH at the earliest possible time.
- Carry-out orders may be called into Pappy's and may be paid upon pick-up using the same steps as above. Pappy's hours will be 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Late carry-out orders must be called in by 9:00 pm with the latest pick-up of the carry-out order by 10:00 pm. The Physical Facilities' Supervisor should record the number of meals and the dollar total of the meals on the back of a green card.
- All lodging will be arranged by the Supervisor. The billings for lodging will be forwarded to Pam Staggs in Physical Facilities Fiscal Affairs and must include the employee name and the date of stay.
Please contact Pam Staggs at 4-9702 or email@example.com to request the Green emergency cards or with any questions.
ITaP’s Cooperative Services Desktop Support (CSDS) group will be implementing changes this evening (Nov. 29) which should reduce the time it takes to sign into your computer. You should see a significant reduction in the log in time for your computer after these changes are applied.
During the Windows 7 migration project, it became apparent the log in time for CSDS-supported computers was not acceptable. As a result, an internal CSDS project identified the primary causes for the log in delays, then developed and tested the changes which are now being put into effect.
If you encounter any issues, please call the Customer Service Center at 4-4000 or send an email detailing the issues to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your contact information and the name of your computer (1074-#####).
