It’s no doubt that we raise great beef in South Dakota. Our farmers and ranchers take a lot of pride in that and it shows in their hard work and continued investment into valued-added agriculture.
As our state’s farmers and ranchers steadily work on getting their crops planted this spring, many are also working with their cattle. Spring is a busy time as farmers have short windows when they can plant due to the weather while also trying to find time to transport their cattle to pasture.
Beef cattle are big consumers of both corn and the ethanol byproduct, distillers grain as cattlemen invest in the highest quality nutrients, which in turn produce the safest and best tasting beef in the entire world.
Besides its great taste, beef is also very nutritious, providing a significant source of protein, B12, zinc, niacin, B6, phosphorus, choline, iron and riboflavin.
We encourage you, your family and friends to celebrate National Beef Month by grilling out with some burgers or your favorite cuts of steak, taking part in a great American tradition and appreciating a great American product during the month of May.
