In a state where cattle outnumber people, it is no surprise that the Idaho Beef Industry has had a tremendous impact on local communities and the economy of Idaho. July is Idaho Beef Month and it is also our opportunity to say “Thank You” to the industry for supporting neighbors facing hunger through the Beef Counts program.
Idaho Beef Council Vice-Chair, Bill Lickley talks about the ten-year anniversary of Beef Counts and how the Idaho beef industry works together to supply families in need with nutritious beef products to promote nutrition. This was filmed at an Idaho Beef Council distribution in Gooding last summer during the height of the pandemic. To recognize Idaho Beef Month and help thank the ranchers and the beef industry we will be featuring articles, recipes and other useful information. We cannot over-emphasize the need for nutritious protein to help our neighbors in Idaho who struggle with food insecurity.
