Branding at Headquarters

Texas's Dieticians Visit JA

The JA is proud of its heritage and proud of the way the industry produces beef.   On a rare occasion, JA shares the experience with others.   In March, the Texas Beef Council hosted Texas dieticians and nutritionists in Amarillo and spent the morning at the JA.
