Who We Are

TEAM BEEF members understand and believe in the nutritional benefits of lean beef and the vital role they play in physical training, being healthy and staying active.  TEAM BEEF members and supporters have the opportunity to share information with those who seek advice on health and nutrition, as well as how cattle are being raised by Iowa producers in a humane and sustainable manner. 

TEAM BEEF will be a loosely organized group of runners who will pick several races during the year to run in. Team members do not have to participate in all races, but are encouraged to stay active and promote the beef industry! 

Iowa TEAM BEEF members can be part of a larger national Team BEEF who support the nation's beef industry.  Check out National Team BEEF in the box at the left.
