The Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA) program recently hit 20,000 graduates. Created in 2009, the checkoff-funded MBA program is a free, self-guided online course that provides members of the beef community, from farmers and ranchers to students, supply chain members and consumers, with the tools and resources needed to become a strong advocate for the beef community.
The online lessons address environmental sustainability, beef nutrition, animal welfare and beef safety, while taking advocates through the beef life cycle, from pasture to plate. After completing the course, MBA graduates can remain involved in the growing community with monthly newsletters and access to a variety of resources and additional lessons. Graduates also can join the program’s Facebook community, where updates are given on the latest consumer trends. For more information or to enroll in the MBA program, click here.
