National Provisioner names Jeff Sindelar a future icon of the meat industry

29880572135_ecb867e6c1_zThe National Provisioner recently included Jeff Sindelar, associate professor of animal science and Extension meat specialist, on its list of 25 future icons of the meat and poultry industry.

As the article explains, Sindelar was selected, in part, for establishing the Wisconsin Master Meat Crafter Program:

As the only meat extension specialist in Wisconsin, Sindelar covers a lot of ground in supporting about 375 state inspected processors and locker shops, as well as larger federally inspected companies — which he has done with exceptional energy, skill and enthusiasm. His signature accomplishment thus far has been the Wisconsin Master Meat Crafter Program, a first-of-its-kind, meat-processing certification program held at the University of Wisconsin Meat Science Laboratory.
