In the News: SUNY Cobleskill Meat Laboratory Manager Betsy Jensen on Local Meat Growers, Processors

Meat Laboratory Manager Betsy Jensen is highlighted in a recent “Times Union” article, examining the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on local meat growers and processing facilities.

New York has almost no large slaughterhouses. ‘Most meat processors in upstate New York fall into the USDA category of small or very small establishments,’ [says] Betsy Jensen, manager of the meat laboratory at the State University of New York, Cobleskill.

Nor do people realize how complex and multidimensional the modern meat industry is.”
