The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association and North Dakota Beef Commission saluted the medical community at the first-ever North Dakota Beef Industry Healthcare Heroes Appreciation Day on Sept. 11.

The beef producer organizations served more than 1,100 complimentary roast beef lunches to doctors, nurses, EMTs and others in the healthcare industry through a drive-through and on-site dining at the Bismarck Event Center parking lot. North Dakota State University’s Carnivore Catering prepared the meal.

“This was ranchers’ way to say thanks to those on the frontlines of the COVID pandemic and every day,” said NDSA President Dan Rorvig, a McVille, N.D., cow-calf producer. “We are grateful for their extra efforts during this time and regard them as our partners in keeping our community healthy. They provide critical medical care and we supply beef, a wholesome, nutritious food for families.”
