In efforts to connect with Texas FFA members and vocational agriculture teachers, the Texas Beef Council (TBC) exhibited at trade shows for the Texas FFA Convention held in Corpus Christi and the Vocational Agriculture Teachers Association of Texas Annual Conference held in Arlington. TBC offered resources for teachers and encouraged students to earn their Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA). Texas FFA has more than 1,000 active FFA chapters with more than 114,000 members across the state.
The Texas Beef Council (TBC) conducts the $1 per head national checkoff program for Texas beef producers and is also the contractor for the Beef Promotion Research Council of Texas (BPRCT), which administers the $1 per head Texas state checkoff program. TBC’s mission is to increase beef demand in the state through programs of beef promotion, research and education. TBC also helps fund national and international beef checkoff programs to increase marketing opportunities around the globe. The BPRCT’s mission is to improve Texas producer profitability by strengthening and expanding beef demand. The TBC and the BPRCT are directed by a 20-member board of cattlemen and women representing the state’s beef producers.
