  The clock is ticking, speak up now.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and USDA appointed a committee to provide recommendations for U.S. Dietary Guidelines. The guidelines are used throughout the nation as indicators of healthy diets for Americans.

Unfortunately, politics has entered U.S. food policy. “Sustainability” is a priority in the proposed guidelines. As a result, the proposed U.S. Dietary Guidelines, for the first time in the nation’s history, omit lean meat from a healthful dietary pattern.

That’s where all of us come in. The public comment period officially closes at midnight May 8. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association as well as the state beef organizations are asking for help.

Below are several examples you can email to the government to support agriculture. Please make sure to click the box that allows your name to be public.
