Hello to the group,

A summer research project requires the biomechanical testing of 14-16 week
(immature) bovine shoulders. Vendors in the southern California area are
producing some rather expensive quotes. I am aware of other vendors in
Phoenix and Tyler, Texas. However, I was wondering if anyone knew of some
other inexpensive sources for this type of material. Essentially, we only
need the intact infraspinatus tendon and the proximal humerus. The
preparation typically involves sectioning the entire front quarter which
produces rather expensive per pound costs and shipping costs.

I would certainly forward this information individually if anyone is

Kind regards to all,


Andrew Mahar, MS
