Cattlemen cut spending

Published on .

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association is sharply paring its spending this year from $20 million to $13.5 million, even while launching a new national effort to break Aug. 4 from Leo Burnett USA, Chicago. The group, which spent about $28 million a few years ago, is shifting from advertising beef itself to pushing branded beef and value-added, pre-cooked beef products at retail. The tagline of the new campaign will shift from "Beef. It's what's for dinner," to "Beef. It's what you want."
