PIERRE, SD - The South Dakota Beef Industry Council (SDBIC) is proud to announce that Team Beef South Dakota had an incredible 2020 season with nearly 200 runners and cyclist of all ages! 2020 is coming to a close and that means the SDBIC is gearing up for the 2021 Team BEEF SD season. Registration for the 2021 season will open on December 6th, 2020! Team BEEF South Dakota is a community of runners and cyclists who recognize the nutritional benefits of beef and the vital role high-quality protein plays in their training. The program is designed for South Dakotans who want to promote beef, be physically active and showcase eating beef in a healthy lifestyle. Through the program Team BEEF members receive nutrition education on how best to incorporate beef into their diet during training. They learn that beef is a high-quality protein containing all the essential amino acids the body needs to help with maintenance, repair, and growth of lean muscle mass.
"Team BEEF continues to grow and evolve year after year. We have a tremendous group of passionate beef promoters on the team and have seen an increase in family involvement. Family members strive to work on living a healthy lifestyle together as they share the beef story," states Holly Swee, Director of Nutrition and Consumer Information. Swee also says "Many people don't realize that on average, a 3-ounce serving of cooked beef provides approximately 175 calories, 10 essential nutrients and nearly 50 percent of the Daily Value for protein. Research shows that exercise is more effective when paired with a higher-protein diet."
Team BEEF S.D. members are actively promoting beef through the program both within and outside our state boarders.
