PRINCETON, Ky. — Following up on the success of its summer “Meat Me at the Table” campaign, the Kentucky Livestock Coalition is drawing attention to the importance of meat in a healthy diet through a “Meat Me at the Tailgate” effort. Representatives from the Kentucky Soybean Board, the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association and Kentucky Farm Bureau were on hand at the recent University of Kentucky RoundUp event, held in conjunction with UK’s football game against the Florida Gators.
Renee Carrico, Debbie Ellis, and Kylie Trail greeted alumni of the University’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and gave them the opportunity to spin the prize wheel for t-shirts, can coolers, and spirit towels printed with the Coalition’s tailgate message.
On October 30, the Coalition will be giving away tailgate-themed items at Western Kentucky University during the Ag Alumni Brunch, and those tailgating are encouraged to post photos to Facebook with the hashtag #MeatMeAtTheTailgate.
The farm families of the Kentucky Livestock Coalition are proud to provide safe, nutritious, affordable and delicious food/meat/protein for your family. Whether you buy directly from a farmer or at a meat market or grocery store, you can feel confident in the quality of the meat provided by farm families. This fall, no matter if you’re tailgating for high school, college, or professional football, the farmers of the Kentucky Livestock Coalition encourage you to post your meaty tailgating meals or snacks on Facebook with the hashtag #MeatMeAtTheTailgate for the chance to win a prize pack.
