Beef: From the Beef Producer to the Consumer

Beef: From the Beef Producer to the Consumer

This event was recorded as part of the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance Third Annual Symposium “Beef: From Plains to Plate”.

John Huston is Executive Vice President Emeritus of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. John Huston chronicles the impact of the National Live Stock & Meat Board (headquartered in Chicago until the late 1990’s) programs, research and initiatives over the years on consumer’s knowledge of beef preparation, nutrient content, purchasing, handling and safety.

Celebrate Midwestern beef foodways by tracing the historic odyssey of all-American meat from the windswept plains of the heartland to meat processors in “cities on the make,” like Chicago, where it was packed, wrapped and sent to dinner plates around the globe. Join the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance (GMFA) on that journey Beef: From Plains to the Plate – Follow the Cattlemen’s Trail to Savory Midwest Beef Traditions
