    Hi, found this on the Nuffield Foundation. Hope it helps you

    The animal material used has not been produced for the purpose of the investigation – it is a regular by-product of the meat industry, available for consumption from some butchers, or part of the waste stream if not used for dissection.

    Some students may be sensitive to the use of any animal product in this way, or to the very existence of animals bred and raised for human consumption.

    Some students may have religious or cultural objections to handling dead animal material, particularly pigs or cows, and depending on the method of slaughter.
