Cattle and beef production represent the largest
single segment of American agriculture. In fact, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) says more farms are classified as beef cattle
operations (35%) than any other type.
The future of the 1 million cattle farmers and
ranchers in this country depends on producing a safe, wholesome and
nutritious food tailored to the needs of consumers. For many farmers and
ranchers, raising cattle is a family tradition.
