Biographical/Historical note

In 1960, Washington State beef producers organized the Washington State Beef Council as a non-profit corporation with the purpose of increasing the sale and consumption of beef through persuading the public of the value, cost, and desirability of beef products. The Council collected a five-cent contribution per head on all cattle marketed to educate the public regarding the nutritional and economic advantages of beef. In 1975, the Council disbanded to become a part of the Washington Beef Commission.
