Clark Meat Science Center

Clark Meat Science Center

While the Clark Meat Science Center is transitioning to new management, partners across Oregon are answering the call to provide high-quality meat products during the transition to keep our customers fed and our students employed. 

The College of Agricultural Sciences is proud to partner with AgSci alums at Painted Hills Natural Beef to sell their quality cuts. Starting Friday, January 26 you can purchase fresh steaks, roasts, and beef at the center—one of only a few places in Corvallis currently selling Painted Hills products.

The College of Agricultural Sciences is thrilled to work with Carlton Farms, known for their handcrafted premium-quality pork and other meat products made in Oregon. The center will sell fresh pork chops from Carlton Farms starting Friday, February 9.

Stop by during business hours and to pick up some meat, and help support both education and AgSci alums working to make tomorrow better for everyone.


Welcome to the Clark Meat Science Center, otherwise known as the Meat Lab! The Meat Lab is a research and teaching facility within the Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences in the College of Agricultural Sciences. It is also a USDA-inspected processing facility.

Through research projects, Animal Sciences 251 & 351 courses, tours, workshops, and extension services, the Meat Lab aims to educate students and consumers alike, and enhance their understanding of meat science principles, concepts, and other issues involving the meat industry.

In addition to the educational element, the Meat Lab houses an on-site retail store, which is used as an outlet to sell a myriad of products, including a variety of retail cuts, fresh and smoked/cooked sausages, bacon, jerky, deli meats, snack sticks, fermented/dry-cured products, frankfurters and even dog treats. The retail store is open to the public on Fridays from noon-5:30 PM.

The Meat Lab is also home to Oregon State University’s Meat Science Club. Through fundraising efforts, such as their annual smoked turkey sale, students in the club use funds to attend industry tours, participate in meat science conferences and conventions, host workshops and outreach events, and develop a wide range of new and innovative meat products.
