Meat+Poultry - November 2022 - 16

COVER STORY
Above: (From left) Meat
scientists Zerle Carpenter,
Gary Smith, Thayne Dutson
and Jeff Savell receiving
team research award
for electrical stimulation
from Deputy Chancellor
Perry Adkisson.
Right: Jeff and Jackie
Savell have been married
since 1975 and have
three children as well as
four grandchildren.
Looking back at Smith's role in him taking
that next step in his education, Savell said
he uses that same advice with his graduate
students today.
" I say, 'You have to listen to your mentors
because they know more about you than
what you know about yourself,' " he said.
" They've had experience talking to people and
evaluating and if they tell you that you have
that capability, you need to listen. "
" Dr. Smith told me I needed to trust him,
and I did. And I'm so glad that I did. "
Just before completing his PhD work,
Savell heard about a job opening at the
university working in the meat science area
helping smaller plants comply with the
Wholesome Meat Act of 1967. " Dr. " Savell was
hired for that position and worked there for
two years after his predecessor retired in 1977.
He next took a teaching job working with Gary
Smith after Carpenter took over as head of the
Department of Animal Science.
TAKING THE TORCH
Fast forward to 1982: Smith was about to
move into the department head position and
Savell began teaching the meat science class
that many felt only Smith could teach properly
(including Savell).

" Forty years ago, he called me into his
office and said, 'There's no way I can be
department head and still teach this class, so I
need you to start teaching.' I said, 'it's scary, it's
too hard, that's your class.' "
Savell joked that his students recently
celebrated the 40th year of Animal Science 307
being his class and he doesn't plan to ever stop
teaching it.
" It's the basic meat science class and I just
feel like that's what I'm called to do; that's
where I've had so many interactions with
people, " he said, adding that nowadays, it isn't
uncommon that he's teaching some of his early
students' children.
Savell said he cannot overstate the early
influence of Gary Smith on his career but
also points out that after Smith took over as
department head, his successor was another
globally recognized meat science legend,
Russell Cross, PhD.
" So, I was the junior guy working with
Gary Smith and Russell Cross for 10 years
(combined), " Savell said. " Who could have
come out with a better apprenticeship position
than what I had working with people that were
as well decorated as anybody in the country or
even in the world? I benefited so much from
being the junior guy - they cleared the way. "
