As a kickoff to our 50th year of publication, which starts in September, BEEF editors want to recognize the important contributors to the beef industry’s success of the past half-century. Thus, we plan to present our BEEF 50, a September issue commemoration of 50 top beef industry contributors. We'll begin soliciting nominations from readers beginning in February, with the final selections to be made by an independent panel of beef industry experts. Watch for more details.
