About the North dakota beef commission

The North Dakota Beef Commission is dedicated to enhancing beef demand by strengthening consumer trust and exceeding consumer expectations.

Meet The Board of Directors and Staff 

North Dakota beef producers care about YOU.

Every time a consumer takes a bite of beef, we want to make sure it’s the best beef eating experience possible.  We also want to make sure that we earn the trust of consumers in our state, country and around the world by doing our job of producing safe, delicious and nutritious beef in the very best way possible.  That’s why we all work together, through a program called the beef checkoff, and invest $2 per head every time we sell cattle.  Those dollars fund beef promotion, research, education, and consumer information programs that help to tell the story of beef to today’s consumers.
