May is Nebraska Beef Month

Nebraska Beef Month celebrates farmers and ranchers, and their contribution to supply chains (and tables) all over the country. Beef is one of the main contributors to Nebraska’s yearly earnings, making its nickname “The Beef State” fitting. The month is all about beef, the industry, and the important people who keep the state’s economy flourishing. Learn more about Nebraska Beef Month, and why people celebrate it every year.

May is Nebraska Beef Month

Nebraska Beef Month

Beef is a huge part of Nebraska’s economy. And every year, beef makes its way to tables across the United States and around the world. Nebraska prides itself on producing nutrient-rich, high-quality beef, earning it the title of the Beef State. When you buy Nebraska beef, you know you’re getting the best.

Mother’s Day isn’t the only celebration in May, but it’s also the choice for beefy celebrations. Governor Jim Pillen proclaimed May as Beef Month in Nebraska in 2023. As the Beef State, Nebraskans have a lot to celebrate!

Nebraska’s Beef Industry

Nebraska’s beef industry is worth at least $12 billion, though some estimates give an even higher number. It’s a flourishing and still-growing industry – and that’s what it is all about.

According to The Nebraska Beef Council, the industry’s foreign relationships remain strong. Nebraska ranches and farms produce and export tons of beef every year. Visits to places like Japan and South Korea help create relationships for beef exports.

Without the beef industry, Nebraska’s economy might have looked completely different! Beef Month acknowledges and celebrates the industry’s contributions, from the processing plants to the ranches.

The Beef State

There are thousands of ranches and meat processing plants throughout the state. Nebraska cattlemen work hard caring for and raising cattle while preserving the land and environment. Approximately 6.8 million head of cattle are in the state, ranking Nebraska second in the nation. Beef is big here, and it’s not just about Berkshire Hathaway!

More Than Just Beef Production

The beef industry produces many other products which flow into other industries. Nebraska also has a reputation for producing high-quality leather products. This proves the industry is about more than just meat! Industries in Nebraska that are a close second are:

  • Technology
  • Investments
  • producing high-quality leather products

Farmers and Ranchers

The Nebraskan beef industry is about more than corporations, companies, and processing plants. Nebraska Beef Month also celebrates individual contributions including the farmers, ranchers, and artisans who contribute their time to a growing industry.
