The Meat Laboratory is a three-story brick and concrete building in the northeast part of the Agricultural Campus. The building is L-s haped, 112 feet by 38 feet with a wing at the rear 60 feet long and 45 feet wide. It was designed as a low-maintenance building, meeting all modern sanitary requirements. It is in no sense a packinghouse but was planned for teaching and research.
