Beef for Father’s Day
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
MONTGOMERY — Gov. Kay Ivey signed a proclamation Wednesday, May 30 encouraging Alabamians to eat beef for Father’s Day.
The Beef for Father’s Day campaign began in 1955 as the first beef promotion effort of the newly-formed Alabama CowBelles Association.
A gubernatorial proclamation has been signed each year since along with a presentation of steaks to the governor in office.

business climate of the state’s beef cattle industry, promoting a positive image while educating consumers that beef is a safe, wholesome, nutritious and convenient food product. The Association has county chapters in all 67 counties and represents 11,500 members statewide.
