Meet Ohio's Beef Community
The beef community is a broad community of dedicated people including farmers and ranchers, small business owners, community leaders, animal caretakers nutritionists and environmentalists dedicated to producing safe, wholesome, nutritious beef. This passionate and long-standing community shares the mission to provide the safest, highest-quality beef in an environmentally and economically sustainable manner. The beef community is comprised of the nearly 1 million U.S. cattle farmers and ranchers who blend time-honored traditions with modern innovation to provide high-quality beef. While some incorrectly believe industrial farming has replaced family farms and ranches, 98 percent of beef farms or ranches are family-owned.
