Vegetarian-Fed Food Purchases (In Progress)
Vegetarian-fed is a term that refers to animals that have been fed a specific feed based on vegetable proteins versus a feed that contains animal protein. The animal protein in feed is much less regulated than vegetarian protein, which causes vegetarian-fed meat to be less likely to be contaminated. The local chicken purchases made by the University are vegetarian-fed. Local chicken makes up 1 percent of the total amount of chicken purchased.
