Murfreesboro, Tenn., (September 6, 2023) – Tennessee Beef Industry Council is proud to announce that Macon County 4-H Club has won the 2023 Tennessee All-Star Beef Backer Contest. The purpose of this contest is to get 4-H clubs involved in promotion of beef during July Beef Month. 4-H Clubs across the state compete for the best beef promotion event to encourage consumers to purchase and prepare more beef, keeping it King of the Grill.
Macon County held eight different events during July which included several elements. The events were held at Save-A-Lot, Mike's Food Value, and Reese’s Piggly Wiggly. Free hamburgers, recipes, steak samples, and other beef related items were given out to citizens of Macon County.
