The Indiana Beef Council is available for classroom visits to discuss beef cuts, cookery and production. Please contact Emma Melcher at [email protected] to schedule a classroom visit.
The Indiana Beef Council with the cooperation of the Indiana Department of Education distributed a Listserv announcement both this year and last, to all FACS and Agriculture educators across the state of Indiana. This email explained that the Indiana Beef Council is available for classrooms presentations about beef at no charge to the school. This presentation includes: cuts of beef, carcass data, beef cookery, beef nutrition, food safety and consumer beef basics information. There has been a phenomenal response to this announcement with educators all across the state contacting the IBC about their interest in this presentation. If interested in scheduling a presentation, please contact the IBCA Office!
Due to the fact that many schools are offering more of an online format and travel and guests are limited, the Indiana Beef Council has put together videos of our educational classroom presentation. These videos include a 3 part breakdown of the presentation as well as the cooking demonstration. While we may not be able to be there in person, we hope to be able to reach out to both students and teachers to provide these resources.
It is often an untold story, but ranching families have led conservation efforts across the United States for generations. Today’s farmers and ranchers are strong examples of true environmentalists.
Sustainability is not a destination. It is a continuous journey being carried out by each generation of farmers and ranchers responsible for raising and supplying beef across the world.
Beyond the special memories around the table and the tasty delights we experience across a lifetime, the foods we eat provide our bodies with fuel to thrive and grow.
To help cut through the confusion over what contributes to a balanced, healthful diet, America’s cattle farmers and ranchers have over the years worked hard to support and build a solid foundation of knowledge based on the latest science and nutrition research.
