Letter from the Editor

by Nikki Richardson, APR, Director, Reputation Management, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff'

As we transition from summer into fall, the beef community is busy as usual. In the midst of all that’s going on, we hope that Beef Issues Quarterly will provide you with timely updates and information about a variety of topics. We have great content ranging from a cattle expansion update to antibiotic stewardship to beef sustainability, among other things. As always, please contact us any time to let us know what you think about BIQ and to share your ideas about specific topics you would like to see addressed. 

This publication wouldn’t be possible without the leadership and foresight of the BIQ Trends Advisory Panel. They identified a wide variety of timely content related to research, updates on current issues and new resources for beef producers. Members include: Jason Ahola, Ph.D., Colorado State University; Jude Capper, Ph.D., Livestock Sustainability Consultant/Washington State University; Mandy Carr, Ph.D., NCBA*; Rick Husted, MBA, NCBA*; Duane Lenz, CattleFax; John Lundeen, NCBA*; Shalene McNeill, Ph.D., R.D., NCBA*; Mike Miller, NCBA*; Season Solorio, NCBA*; Josh White, NCBA*; and Daren Williams, NCBA*.
