RAISING Beef in Iowa

Take a minute to get to know our beef farmers in Iowa. In response to a growing interest in knowing more about how beef is raised and connecting consumers to farmers. NCBA, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, generated its first-ever social responsibility report, The Cattlemen's Stewardship Review. The first-of-its-kind look at the values and vision of beef farmers and ranchers and how they responsibly raise wholesome food and healthy animals.
