The meat scientists and extension specialists at South Dakota State University plan to host a three-day course on meat and food safety beginning March 10.

The course is accredited by International HACCP Alliance and meets USDA HACCP requirements under federal and state meat inspection. The meeting includes training with HACCP experts, and is open to meat and food processors who work under HACCP guidelines. Others with an interest in HACCP, including students, also are welcome to attend.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the SDSU Department of Animal and Range Sciences, and the Cooperative Extension Services of South Dakota and Nebraska have organized and sponsored the event. The course will be hosted at the Animal Science Complex on the SDSU campus in Brookings.

The course is $295 per person, and includes training materials and lunches (but not lodging). The registration deadline is Feb. 24.
