The Beef Improvement Federation is the story of how cow people can rally together to bring about monumental change in the beef industry. Join us, and see how the human touch and power of ideas can result in the development of technologies that better the beef industry as a whole.
Our mission is to observe the past, with objective clarity, so that the dust of the milling herds of today and the perceptions of the future, on which the industry must act, can be clearly seen.
The Beef Improvement Federation seeks to establish uniform procedures to regulate the beef cattle industry, develop beef improvement and quality management programs, encourage cooperation among all segments of the beef industry, educate BIF members and increase confidence in the economic potential of the beef industry that can be achieved through performance measurement and assessment.
