MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (June 28, 2023) – Fire up the grills and celebrate July Beef Month in Tennessee! Governor Lee’s Beef Month proclamation recognizes Tennessee’s 37,000 cattle producers for contributing to the state’s economy, conserving natural resources, and providing a high-quality protein for people to enjoy.
From family favorites on the grill and slow cooker classics to quick and easy weekday dinners, beef’s taste, versatility, and nutritional profile make meals delicious and nutritious. Beef is a good source of ten essential nutrients including high quality protein, iron, zinc, and choline, packing a nutritional punch in one 3 oz. serving.
In addition, Tennessee’s farming and ranching families are committed to continuous improvement and innovation and to producing high-quality, sustainable beef for generations to come. “Beef farmers and ranchers care deeply for the environment and have a vested interest in sustainability. We want to steward the land in our care and preserve it for future generations who will continue feeding families throughout the world, “said Patterson Freeman, Manager McWherter Farms in Dresden, and Beef Council Chairman.
“Let’s experience summer’s sizzle by gathering together and enjoying beef,” said Valerie Bass, executive director of the Tennessee Beef Council. “Summer cookouts, family reunions and outdoor activities are perfect events for experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of grilling beef.”
