The MBA program was developed by The Beef Board with Beef Checkoff funds to aid beef producers in meeting the challenge presented by the passionate and vocal anti-animal agriculture activists who question the treatment of animals in food production, the impact of the beef industry on the environment, the role of beef in a healthy diet and the safety of beef products. This on-line training program of six courses offers rewards and recognition to graduates and equips them to become informed and effective advocates to friends, family, schools, civic groups, print and broadcast media and through electronic communications.
Members of the beef industry and anyone interested in learning the facts to fight the anti-agriculture movement may fmd more information on the MBA program by contacting the Extension Office or BCCW through Andie Estes at 361-547-9100.
