NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen kicks off new season

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association's Cattlemen to Cattlemen returned for a new season on July 31, taking an in-depth look at the outcomes of the beef checkoff-funded 2011 National Beef Quality Audit. The audit is conducted every five years and provides a set of guidelines and measurements on beef quality conformance of the U.S. beef supply.

According to the researchers, this is the most comprehensive review of beef quality in the 20 year history of the NBQA. The 2011 audit found that although significant improvements have been made in producing safe, satisfying and wholesome beef, there are areas for improvement.

Four researchers involved in conducting the 2011 NBQA discussed the results on NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen. Panelists included John Paterson, NCBA executive director of producer education; Keith Belk, lead principal investigator for Colorado State University; Jeffrey Savell, lead principal investigator for Texas A&M University; and Jason Ahola, principal investigator for Colorado State University. The July 31 episode is available at

"This is a unique opportunity to sit down and talk about the results of the 2011 NBQA with a few of the researchers who were directly involved in gathering this information," said NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen host Kevin Ochsner. "Determining where the industry is making progress and finding areas for improvement are key to measuring our performance as beef cattle producers."

NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen airs Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. EST on RFD-TV. The program also airs Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. EST and Saturdays at 9 a.m. EST.
