Earth Day Quickly Approaching!
American cattle farmers and ranchers have embraced the values of Earth Day for generations. In honor of Earth Day’s 40th anniversary, April 22nd, the beef checkoff is celebrating the more than 40 different ways raising cattle can contribute to environmental sustainability.
The steps we take to improve the environment aren’t new; like Earth Day, they have been around for many decades. In fact, as long as cattle have been raised on our land, our families have worked to protect and enhance our environment.
Farmers and ranchers employ a variety of environmentally friendly practices that often are as unique as the area where they raise their cattle. There are many ways to define “green,” and collectively these folks represent many shades of green.
We are proud to be everyday environmentalists; making every day Earth Day.
