Texas A&M University tops Meat & Poultry magazine's list of the 10 best meat and poultry-related education programs in the U.S. The rankings, listed in the November issue, were arrived at via informal surveys by the editorial and sales staff of professionals working in all segments of the industry. The interviewees were asked to rank the leading programs.

“What we found is that a handful of universities have established reputations within the industry for supplying a steady stream of quality students, while also offering low-cost, problem-solving services,” the article said.
