It looks like another one of these events is in the works, and it's tomorrow! If you're near the Hayes, Kans. area, there is a great event coming up for beef enthusiasts this week. Brittany J. Howell, Ph.D informed me of an event to celebrate beef producers on Thursday, May 7, 2009, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in "The Quad" at Fort Hays State University

The event's slogan is, "Animal Agriculture: We Feed the World, and so much more!" I'm proud of the students and faculty at Fort Hays State University, and I wish I was able to attend. If you're in the area, I highly encourage you to take part in this event!

Quick BEEF Daily Fact: As summer gets closer, I can't help but think of spending time at the lake, cutting hay and of course, grilling season! The Beef Checkoff sponsors an awesome newsletter called the Beef Retail Blast, by Jim Henger. In the latest newsletter, there was a list of the top ten grilling cuts for summertime. Check them out to see how your favorite cut stacks up. (My favorite, the ribeye, is in the number two spot.)
