BEEF Declared Official Meat of the 77th Sturgis ® Motorcycle Rally™
Rain is in short supply this summer, but August promises to be the month when BEEF will be celebrated by thousands of consumers as they head to the 77th Sturgis ® Motorcycle Rally™ . The South Dakota Beef Industry Council (SDBIC) team and the beef checkoff will partner with the City of Sturgis as the “Official Meat of the 77th Sturgis ® Motorcycle Rally™”.
“Sturgis ® Motorcycle Rally™is proud to partner with the South Dakota Beef Industry Council to carry on a tradition of hundreds of thousands of Rally goers coming to South Dakota and sitting down at meal times to barbeque and eat the best quality beef in the world,” said Jerry Cole, director of Sturgis Rally and Events.
As part of the sponsorship, beef will be the premier protein at the Rally with the City of Sturgis promoting beef on promotional materials, billboards, social media, the annual mayor’s ride and numerous other events. SDBIC will also bring Kita Roberts, aka Girl Carnivore, to the venue as a lead beef advocate and celebrity food judge engaging in conversation with food enthusiasts both online and in person about the continuous power of protein. Kita will also spend some time with South Dakota ranchers listening and learning as they tell their beef story. Read more about this here.
