July is Idaho beef month!

Consumers around the country may associate Idaho with its famous potatoes, but Idaho ranchers know that the state‚Äôs agricultural industry produces another important product: beef. In a state where cattle outnumber people, the Idaho Beef Industry has had a tremendous impact on local communities and the economy of Idaho. Idaho supports 2.50 million head of cattle, valued at $2.625 billion dollars.
