The Beef Safety Research program includes the study of cattle-borne pathogens and/or their resistance, with the potential for causing human illness and beef production practices that may impact either. Historically, this Beef Checkoff-funded Program has focused research on every step in the production chain, evaluating potential safety-enhancing interventions. In recent years, this program has concentrated on discovering opportunities for reducing safety threats at pre-harvest.
- Maintain consumer confidence in beef as a safe and wholesome food
