'Demand USA Beef' billboard erected along Kansas Turnpike
Passing by the pastures of the flint hills, drivers will now get a stunning look at the red, white and blue "Demand USA Beef" Billboard that Kansas cattleman Mason Greene proudly displays on his property just one mile south of Cassoday along the Kansas Turnpike. This is the first billboard erected on behalf of the Kansas Cattlemen's Association. Mason, his father Stan Greene, and his nephew Tehl Lynn spent the day recently re-canvassing an old sign that had been on the property for a number of years and replaced it with the huge 10-foot by 36-foot billboard.
"I hope this will provoke some thought. This is a high traffic area, and consumers from Kansas City to Wichita pass by here every day and maybe this will get them thinking about where their food comes from," Greene stated.
"We are so excited to have such a positive advertisement supporting USA cattle producers. Many people do not realize that some beef is imported into our country and that consumers have the opportunity to ask for beef that is born, raised, and processed right here in the USA. I think this will bring attention to that, and we are so grateful for the generosity of the Greene family for working so hard on this."
The billboard can be seen on the east side of the road and will not be missed by drivers headed northbound on the Turnpike. The sign was donated by Mason Greene, who resides in El Dorado, and Aaron Winter from Dodge City. The cattlemen had a local firm, GCI Graphic Concepts Inc. from El Dorado, create the sign.
