Meat and Poultry Inspection Division Director Dr. Karen Beck with Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler

A recent post on the In the Field blog from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) featured Dr. Karen Beck, director of the Meat and Poultry Inspection Division.

In honor of Women’s History Month, NCDA&CS shared brief interviews with the nine women who serve as division directors.

The Meat and Poultry Inspection Division of 118 inspectors, supervisors, veterinarians, and support personnel ensures that meat and poultry production facilities are inspected in alignment with state and federal requirements.

“‘Every day, rain or shine, pandemic or not, our staff members are at work across the state to ensure regulatory requirements are met for the production of safe wholesome and unadulterated products,” Beck said. “I could not be prouder of the work they have done and continue to do each day.”

We’re proud to share the NCDA&CS’s spotlight of Dr. Karen Beck, whose leadership directly relates to the work of Poultry Extension faculty and staff.
