During Wednesday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Tate Corliss of Texas Tech discussed his team’s latest win in the International Meat Judging Meet held in Australia.

The international community invites teams from all over the world to compete in this event. The All-American team for 2014 was made up of 3 Tech students and 2 Kansas State students. Tate Corliss was chosen as the coach.

This year, the competition took place in Australia. Teams from Korea, Indonesia, Japan and Pakistan were all there, but the American team was able to win 1st Place.

In addition to leading international champion meat judging teams, Tate Corliss runs Raider Red Meats, a USDA approved, for-profit entity of Texas Tech that helps pay for meat judging teams as well as graduate students studies and scholarships.

“With our knowledge of meat science and quality beef, we were able to launch a company where we raise money for our students. So, all of our profits at the end of the year go into endowments for our students, and scholarships and things like that. We offer only the high end, highest quality beef, pork, and lamb you can buy,” Corliss said.

They sell premium meats that are hand cut in house. Raider Red Meats prides themselves in the quality of the meats they offer. However, in addition to providing premium meats, Raider Red Meats also offers competitive prices. This is due to the meats being produced on the local level, preventing Raider Red Meats from having to go through some other beef provider.
