300 and counting!

Those of you who follow the blog’s page on Facebook know how I like to celebrate our little social media milestones. Hitting the 300-follower mark is no exception!
So, as promised, I’ll be hosting a live chat on the page next Wednesday at 8 p.m. CST — complete with some fun prizes! (I’m still gathering these up, so I can’t announce just what they are yet, but I think they will be popular among a bunch of beef lovers like you.)
Here’s how it will work:
  • Hop on over to Facebook at 8 p.m. Wednesday. (Don’t worry — there will be reminders!)
  • I’ll throw out a status update relating to beef buying, cooking or meal planning.
  • You guys will join in on the discussion by commenting on the status update.
  • A few minutes later, I’ll throw out another status update and we’ll repeat the process.
  • We’ll pause to give away a prize (or 2), and then give away a grand prize at the end of the chat.
So, if you haven’t liked Make Mine Beef on Facebook yet, be sure to do so before Wednesday (there's a handy link on the right-hand side of this page) so you can play. We’re going to have a lot of fun talking about beef and a couple of you will even get a prize out of the deal!


  1. Hey Katrina!

    You don't know me but I'm a facebook follower and now a blog follower also! I just love your stuff! I noticed you are a cattle lover! I am getting ready to graduate from West Texas A&M University and my ultimate goal is to be an advocate for the cattle industry. Exposing the high standards of animal welfare and environmental management! I enjoy your blog! Thanks so much!

  2. Hi, Emily! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. It's great to hear from you and I appreciate the kind words!

    If you haven't already, I highly recommend getting your Masters of Beef Advocacy through NCBA. It's a free, completely online 6-hour course that will prepare you to represent the beef industry in all sorts of ways, whether it's writing letters to the editor, commenting on online news stories, speaking to civic groups or starting a blog.

    Good luck with (and enjoy!) your final days at WT! I hope to see you on the chat next week, too!

    Have a great weekend!
