On social media, it seems like there’s a “holiday” for everything, and while it may seem trivial, I think a good cheeseburger is worth celebrating. March 29 was National Hamburger Day and I almost missed it!

Cruising on Facebook and Instagram, I saw all kinds of ways people were celebrating the day of the burger. From posting photos of sizzling burgers on the grill to checking in at their favorite burger joints to discussing the best toppings to place on a beef patty, National Hamburger Day was a great reminder that beef is king with consumers and grilling season is our product’s time to shine!

A burger is an iconic American staple, and Memorial Day weekend is a time when many fired up the grill for the summer season, serving beef eats at barbecues with family and friends.

While I’m a day late for the celebration on this blog post, I thought I would round up some of the best National Hamburger Day headlines for you to browse.

After all, it’s a rare day when the news cycle is dominated by positive articles about beef, so we might as well soak it up before we dive back into correcting misinformation perpetuated by a sensationalist media.

With that, here are some of the best headlines from yesterday’s beefy celebration:

In case you've missed it, throughout the month of May I have been highlighting the Beef Month promotions and educational campaigns that have been taking place across the country.

As Beef Month concludes on Friday, consider how we might all keep the momentum going on social media.

Share your state beef council’s posts. Take pictures of your favorite beef meals. Swap recipes with friends. Present nutritional and environmental information in online conversations.

Live your brand on the ranch and online to protect your legacy and your livelihood by keeping beef at the center of the dinner plate.
