With today's youth becoming increasingly more removed from agriculture, it is important to educate them about where their food comes from, its nutritional value, and the importance of agriculture in their everyday lives. We are committed to supporting education and encourage teachers of all subjects to utilize our free curriculum guides, fact sheets, activity masters, and reference materials about cattle production, beef nutrition, beef preparation, safe food handing practices, beef recipes and much more.
Teachers with 7th through 12th grade classes may take advantage of our Beef for the Classroom reimbursement program. This program provides financial support for the use of beef products in junior and senior high school Family and Consumer Science, Agriculture courses or other classes where beef is cooked. The Idaho Beef council is happy to provide free, high quality peer-reviewed educational materials to Idaho teachers.
