Many Americans are working together to help hurricane evacuees and that certainly holds true of people in agriculture as you can see in my last post. The Missouri Beef Industry Council has made a donation of $5,000 through the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association for a program to send beef products with a long shelf life to aid the people in need. This program was initiated by Heartland Farm Foods (Montgomery City, MO) CEO, Mark Uthlaut. In this week’s MBIC Report, Mark discusses how the program came together and the unique canned beef product his company has made available.
As I just mentioned in my last post about CornTalk, you podcast subscribers to the MBIC Report should have received it earlier this week. But now it’s also posted for those of you who just like to click and listen.
September is food safety month and the Missouri Beef Industry Council is making sure people know about it. They’re producing a series of talking news releases on the subject.

School’s back in session so it’s time to think nutrition for children. In this week’s MBIC Report, Alane Lidolph, director of consumer information for the Missouri Beef Industry Council, talks about the ABC’s of back to school nutrition.
In this week’s Missouri Beef Industry Council report we talk about child nutrition programs funded with beef checkoff dollars. Cindy interviews Dean Carroll of Clarence, MO, who just recently attended his last official meeting as an MBIC board member after serving for six years.
Consumer confidence in beef is still strong according to the latest Talking News Release from the Missouri Beef Industry Council.
Eventhough 72% of producers approve of the Checkoff, even more (74%) believe it has contributed to the positive growth in demand for beef. I wonder what happened to those other 2%. They don’t like growth?
