Masters of Beef Advocacy

"The checkoff-funded MBA program is a self-directed online training program designed to equip beef producers and industry allies with the information they need to be everyday advocates for the beef industry."

Consumers love beef. They love the sizzle of a steak on the grill and biting into a thick, juicy burger. But they have questions. Where does beef come from? Is it safe? Is proper care given to animals and the environment?

We have a great story to tell. Beef producers work hard every day to be good stewards of the land and their animals in providing safe and nutritious beef for America’s dinner tables. We need to be passionate and vocal in telling our story.

That’s what the Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA) program is about…equipping beef producers across the country to tell their story in presentations to schools and church/civic groups, through local media and in the “virtual” world of the Internet.

Annual Report 2017

"The year ahead looks very exciting with new opportunities to promote and educate beef’s nutritional value to consumers. I look forward to leading this organization to the best of my ability as we move forward in a very positive direction for the beef industry. We are also looking forward to getting out and visiting with producers around the state to hear your ideas on the beef industry and advocate your voice for beef. With that I thank you and encourage you to contact any of us at the SDBIC."
