Producers can’t be everywhere, so the checkoff is encouraging them to tell BEEF magazine – in 25 to 75 words – what they believe the beef checkoff does for them while they’re busy managing their operations. When all the entries are in, one lucky winner will take home a 12-piece beef checkoff “Tools for Tailgating” package. Here are some easy ways to enter: Watch your e-mail for the e-blast from BEEF magazine and click the link to submit an entry OR post a comment directly on www.facebook.com/mybeefcheckoff OR e-mail your entry to Beef Board with "BEEF magazine contest" as the subject and we'll post it for you. The Facebook post went live Nov. 17 and is open to comments. Entry deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009.
