“In January 2021, we set out to establish a set of sustainability goals that would inspire progress within the U.S. cattle production community. These goals are producer-focused and science-based. We know that U.S. beef is the most sustainable in the world, and that we’ll only continue to improve. It’s time to carry that message to the rest of the world.”

– Marty Smith, Past President, Sustainability Goals Task Force Chairman, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association
