Checking In on the Beef Checkoff- Continued Investment in Sound Nutritional Research is Paramount

Wed, 25 Jul 2018 14:25:34 CDT

Checking In on the Beef Checkoff- Continued Investment in Sound Nutritional Research is Paramount Checking In on the Beef Checkoff is a new series the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and the Oklahoma Farm Report is proud to offer in partnership with the Oklahoma Beef Council. Over the next several weeks, we invite you to join us as we highlight some of the efforts being undertaken by the Beef Checkoff to promote beef on behalf of producers. This week, Angie Meyer, chairwoman of the Oklahoma Beef Council, visits with us about the Checkoff funded nutrition research being done to help educate health professionals and consumers about beef’s role in a healthy, balanced diet. Listen to Meyer speak with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about this effort, by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.



“For decades, the beef industry has invested Checkoff funds to do the best, most dependable nutrition science to share with the diet and health community,” Meyer said. “Over the years, they have made a positive difference in how beef is looked at in healthy diets.”


Meyer explains that physicians and dieticians, those who often make nutritional recommendations to their patients to improve or maintain a healthy lifestyle, never give advice blindly - nor should they.


“They need science and research,” she says. “And, there are those who will twist information to put beef in a bad light. That’s why it’s important we continue to fund well-designed and peer-reviewed research that reinforces the fact that beef is not just great tasting, but great for a nutritious diet as well.”
