Make it beef for memorial day!
Memorial Day ranks as one of the largest beef consumption days of the year. Celebrations traditionally involve picnics and barbecues with family and friends, and provide the perfect setting for utilizing beef.
Surveys show, on average, U.S. consumers grill out more frequently from now through August than any other time of the year. According to a consumer survey conducted by the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, beef is the meat of choice for more than 80% of outdoor grilling occasions. The Fourth of July and Labor Day regularly round out the top three beef consumption days.
