BEEF 50 awardSeptember 2013 marks the beginning of BEEF magazine’s 50th year of publication. To commemorate that occasion, BEEF editors want to recognize the important contributors to the beef industry’s success of the past half-century. Thus, we plan to present our BEEF 50, a September issue commemoration of 50 top beef industry contributors.

The nomination period has been closed. The final selections will be made by an independent panel of beef industry experts.

You can get a flavor for the caliber of honorees by viewing the honorees of our BEEF Top 40 feature in 2004.

I hope you’ll join us in celebrating a milestone anniversary for BEEF magazine, and help us honor our industry’s heroes at the same time.
