Beef Literacy To Be Found Down on My American Farm

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 08:45:28 CST

Beef Literacy To Be Found Down on My American Farm The beef checkoff will soon be launching a multi-pronged approach to beef literacy. Building on the popular educational platform MyAmericanFarm.Org, the checkoff will launch a new Beef Heritage game, celebrating how producers care for animals, care for the land and provide quality beef products using a variety of production methods.  To amplify the program, other platform details include a volunteer kit which will contain resources to conduct beef literacy classroom visits and activities. 


In addition, a second My American Farm game, emphasizing nutrition and health benefits of beef products is also on its way with a mobile application featuring both new beef games.  To round out the efforts, the Beef Checkoff is funding a new Beef Ag Mag elementary school reader, targeting parents, teachers and families of young learners. 


The program is managed by the American Farm Bureau Foundation, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff. 

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s My American Farm project teaches agricultural literacy to consumers and the public through an interactive computer game. Players learn where food comes from and how those products get from the farm to their dinner plate. My American Farm is an online educational game that lets students learn about agriculture while having fun.
