'All About Beef' App Features Two New Games

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 15:50:16 CDT

'All About Beef' App Features Two New Games The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture released a new educational app, “All About Beef,” funded in part by the Beef Checkoff.


App versions of “The Steaks are High” and “Grocery Grab” are STEM-based games funded by the Beef Checkoff Program and geared toward students in grades 3-5. In addition to teaching nutrition and environmental facts, the apps also feature kid-friendly beef recipes.


The My American Farm games, including “The Steaks are High” and “Grocery Grab” are available on the iTunes store for iPhone and iPad, at Google Play for Android devices, on Amazon for the Kindle Fire and on www.MyAmericanFarm.org.


The Beef Checkoff Program funded development of this game and supporting resources. The Beef Checkoff Program (www.MyBeefCheckoff.com) was established as part of the 1985 farm bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. In states with qualified beef councils, states retain up to 50 cents of the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval.


The My American Farm educational resource is a special project of the Foundation. The site and resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor, DuPont Pioneer. To take advantage of the free My American Farm resources, games and activities, visit www.MyAmericanFarm.org.
