Beef Counts

Beef Counts

Idaho’s beef industry recognizes its impact on Idaho and the effect it has on the local economies. Beef Counts is a program designed to provide a consistent supply of high-quality protein throughout the year to The Idaho Foodbank. This is done through cash and animal contributions made by Idaho cattle ranchers.

As the first program of its kind in the United States, Beef Counts and its partners, the Idaho Cattle Association, Idaho CattleWomen Council, Idaho Beef Council and Agri Beef Co., collectively support this innovative program, which quickly converts cash or live animal donations into nutritious beef for hungry Idaho families.

Since its inception Agri Beef has provided more than $550,000 in support of providing Idaho families with the protein they need to live healthy lives.

Celebrating 1 Million Meals

In 2017, we celebrated 1 million servings of nutritious beef being provided throughout Idaho.
