Stakeholder Engagement Committee


Engage beef community stakeholders in programs that enhance understanding of the beef checkoff and advance the beef industry.


  • Measure, document, improve and communicate the net environmental impact of beef production.
  • Align and collaborate with traditional and non-traditional partners to tell the positive story of beef cattle production
  • Expand BQA program to include verification
  • Attract innovation and intellectual capital into the beef industry
  • Encourage the cooperation and collaboration of existing industry advisory committees to identify and prioritize research efforts

Twice a year, producer leaders meet in committees to review promotions and other projects that directly tie to their initiatives based on the Beef Industry Long Range Plan.
