The official newsletter of Kentucky's Beef Industry

Today's Beef Consumer

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), as a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, is continually tracking trends, monitoring issues, and surveying the general landscape that has the potential to impact the beef industry. NCBA does this through a variety of tools, most notably by conducting consumer and market analysis, funded by the Beef Checkoff, while also scanning secondary research resources. Across the food landscape, it appears that increased prices for domestic goods, notably food products, continue to play a major role in consumer sentiment and purchasing habits. While some recent optimism has been noted regarding the U.S. economic situation, consumers are still showing signs of worry.

The Kentucky Junior Cattlemen's Association held their annual "KJCA Fall Classic" September 23rd-25th. Junior Cattlemen from across the state were able to come and participate in cattle shows, contests, and enjoy time with their friends during the weekend. We were thrilled to host over 140 kids and over 180 head of cattle! Congratulations to all of the exhibitors on a job well done!
