March 20, 2022

This year we will not only celebrate #MeatIn on March 20th, but rather make it a #MeatIn weekend with all the events that are planned around the state on March 19th!

Why Does #MeatIn Day Matter?

Our industry is still facing ongoing challenges and challengers that appear tp want to harm or end beef production and subsequently harm consumers in the process. We must work to combat misinformation and detractors of our industry at all levels. The strength of the industry is rooted in your communities, and your voices must be heard and your contributions need to be recognized statewide.

Last year, Colorado Cattlemen's Association promoted a "Meat In" Day in Colorado on March 20, 2021.  CCA encouraged Colorado to meet in a restaurant and order your favorite meat dish, meet with family and friends for a meal featuring meat!

The goal of the day was not only to promote the benefits of meat consumption to Colorado, but to also patronize our local businesses, restaurants, etc. that have been deeply affected by the economic struggles of the pandemic. CCA worked with multiple groups across the state to promote meat products through discounts, specials, and more! Over 75 events happened and 100+ restaurants and businesses ran specials related to Meat In Day. Over 25,000 people across the state were fed free meals, including more that 1,200 food insecure residents in the Denver area. To top it off, over $300,000 was raised across Colorado to support need-based causes in the name of Meat In Day.
