Cal Poly wins in Colorado
'Santa Maria Style'

Six Cal Poly students competed this past week in Fort Collins, Colorado at the American Meat Science Association’s Reciprocal Meat Conference. The teams consisted of three animal science, one agricultural systems management and two agricultural science students: Sarah Dreyer, Connor Smith, Kira Olson, Courtney Creighton, Shelby Watts and Christian Gomez, respectively. This year was the first time in many years that Cal Poly has competed and was coached by Morgan Metheny. One team, including Sarah, Connor, Kira and Christian, competed in the Taste of RMC Competition against three other agricultural universities including Fresno State, Iowa State and Texas Tech University. During the Taste of RMC University Competition, the students were to create and present their sausage-centric, on-the-go snack, including a food safety HACCP plan and marketing plan for their product. The team’s product for this year’s competition featured Cal Poly Meats’ Beef Snack Sticks and the Cal Poly Creamery’s Gouda. The Cal Poly team won second place in the competition with Iowa State placing first. In addition, all Cal Poly students competed amongst a total of 110 students in the Iron Chef Product Development Competition. All students were split into ten teams and challenged to develop two separate chicken dishes based on assigned spice combinations at the JBS Headquarters' Pilot Plant. Sarah Dreyer’s team earned second place with their Gochujang Meatballs and Harissa Wings. Whereas Shelby Watts’ team brought home the People’s Choice Award with their Five Spice Corn Dogs and Black Cherry Adobo Wings. Our second team in attendance, including Sarah, Kira, Courtney, and Shelby, competed in the Quiz Bowl Competition where the students answered questions about meat industry trends, history, production and muscle biology. These experiences have truly embodied the learn by doing education that all students receive from Cal Poly, testing their knowledge and practical experience.
