Webinar hosting presenter
Meat Scientist, Certified Angus Beef LLC
As the corporate meat scientist for the Certified Angus Beef® brand, Dr. Daniel Clark engages and educates partners about beef quality and meat science at The Culinary Center and meat labs across the country. He also focuses on beef innovation and supports marketing efforts to help drive sales of the very best Angus beef.

The Illinois native received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in animal science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then journeyed to Wooster, Ohio, where he resides with his wife, Diana, and their daughter, Idamarie, to complete his post-doctoral research at The Ohio State University (OSU). Before joining the Certified Angus Beef® brand team, Daniel also worked at OSU as an assistant professor, where he taught meat science classes, researched livestock production and meat quality, and developed a food-safety certificate program.

Daniel’s interest in cattle began on his family’s farm, and through participation in 4-H, FFA and Angus cattle shows. It wasn’t until he started participating in collegiate meat judging competitions that his passion for meat science was sparked.
