What will be the biggest drivers of beef purchases in 2014? How are consumers deciding what to pick at the meat case and on the menu? And how will market conditions, supply and pricing all play out to meet consumer demands? On Feb. 4, as part of the 2014 Cattle Industry Annual Convention & NCBA Trade ShowMidan Marketing and CattleFax will present “Understanding Consumer Mindset & Current Beef Consumption Trends,” a comprehensive overview of beef supply and economic conditions and consumers’ attitudes and behaviors around fresh meat purchases.

NCBA convention attendees can join the session next month from 1-2:30 p.m. (CT) at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. The session also will be accessible as a live webinar for meat industry influencers to participate remotely.

In the first half of the session Alan Smith, director of protein research and risk management at CattleFax, will provide the latest data on the economics of the meat industry, including cattle and competitive protein supply, demand and pricing. Midan Marketing Principal Michael Uetz will then share research on consumer attitudes and behaviors as it relates to beef purchasing and consumption.
