Consumers around the country may associate Idaho with its famous potatoes, but Idaho ranchers know that the state’s 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.
Governor Brad Little declared July to be Idaho Beef Month. July of 2020 marked the 19th annual month-long celebration. Beef Month showcases not only the valuable role of beef in a healthy and balanced diet but also the long and distinguished history of the Idaho Beef Industry.
