The Darden Digest welcomes Dr. Kim Stackhouse, Director of Sustainability Research for the National Cattleman's Beef Association. Darden has partnered with the NCBA to better understand the sustainability impact of cattle production in the United States.

Beef production in the U.S. has a rich history and the American cowboy serves as a foundation of our culture. Today, the beef industry continues to play an important role economically and socially in our country by providing high-quality protein to a growing population. Ranches also protect and preserve the open spaces for which the U.S. is known.  However, like all food producing industries, cattlemen and women will face their greatest challenge in the coming decades, as we face a need to increase food production by 70 percent in just 37 years.
