NDBC Salutes North Dakota Nurses in Rural Clinics

BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Beef Commission is teaming up with rural clinics to show their support for nurses in North Dakota.

May 6-12 is National Nurses Week and beef producers in the state are recognizing the important health care professionals for the critical role they play in the health and well-being in the state. Beef plays a role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, with valuable nutrients wrapped up in a delicious package.

The NDBC is providing beef sticks, jerky and promotional materials to nearly 70 rural healthcare facilities throughout the state. Below is a list of participating clinics.

National Nurses Week is one of several “Beef Month” activities planned by the NDBC, including the third annual Beef Burger Contest, Flock Fest with the Bismarck Larks Northwoods League baseball team, North Dakota CattleWomen’s virtual 5K, Junior Beef Readers challenge and school lunch promotions.

North Dakota produces more than 915 million pounds of beef annually and contributes annual cash receipts from beef cattle sales totaling $2.53 billion.

The NDBC represents North Dakota beef producers and manages the state Beef Checkoff program that enhances beef demand by strengthening consumer trust and exceeding consumer expectations. This is accomplished through programs and activities in the areas of promotion, research and consumer information.
