Beef Producers- Big or Small- Are Grabbing Their MBAs!

Beef Producers- Big or Small- Are Grabbing Their MBAs!

There all kinds of folks connected to the beef industry that have signed up for the Masters in Beef Advocacy Program that Daren Williams shepherds. Williams is the Dean of the Beef Industry MBA Program- and he says large and small beef producers have stepped up to be a part of this proactive effort to communicate a positive story about raising cattle and producing beef for consumers here in the US and around the world.

Wiliiams is our guest on this Best of Beef Buzz. He says that the MBA program has a world of potential. "Since launching the MBA program in March, 2009, more than 3,000 students have enrolled and 1,500+ have completed the online courses. But more than numbers, you are making a difference! MBA grads have been actively involved in promotional efforts such as the “Give Thanks” and “I Heart Beef” campaigns, as well as working to correct misinformation about modern beef production’s impact on the environment and beef’s role in a healthy diet."

Click here for more information on the Masters in Beef Advocacy Program. Daren hopes that even more producers will sign up- take the informatitive six segments that make up the on line part of the MBA program- then attend a final session and get their certificate that shows they now possess a genuine MBA degree!

The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the state on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
