Chris Raines Memorial Fund - American Meat Science Association

Chris Raines Memorial Fund - American Meat Science Association | ChrisRaines | Scoop.it

Chris Raines' contributions to meat science in his short career at Penn State University will have long term effects on the discipline. He was a pioneer in the application of social networking technologies for communication within the meat science community and with consumers. His passion for agriculture and his willingness to confront misperceptions while listening to other positions made him an uncommon advocate for animal agriculture. Proceeds for this fund will be used to support programs of the American Meat Science Association (additional information will be available in January, 2012).
