Use aggiemeat.tamu.edu/4-h-ffa-retail-identification-cuts/ to go through pictures and explain each retail cut. This site is a great resource: good pictures and follows the CDE contest list. 3.

This activity was derived to connect the animal industry with the tragedies of 9/11.  Most students today were not born when the events of 9/11 took place.  I though this activity allowed students to conceptualize 9/11 and the significance of K9 counterparts.  Referencing the following book is a nice addition to this activity. .
