Siskiyou Co. CattleWomen are supporting the Sodexo Foundation's Scholarship opportunity for students, K-grad school, who have helped to end hunger in their communities....for information or to submit, visit: SodexoFoundation.org. 

Every day, Sodexo serves hundreds of thousands of nutritious meals. Yet according to the USDA across our nation 50 million people are at risk of hunger, including more than16 million children. That represents one in five children that face hunger -- preventing them from reaching their full potential. As the leading provider of Quality of Life Services, fighting hunger is the focus of our community service efforts. As part of Sodexo’s Better Tomorrow commitments, our STOP Hunger program mobilizes entire Sodexo communities, including employees, consumers, clients and suppliers to join forces to make a difference and end hunger. Sodexo’s STOP Hunger program spans across 6 continents in 42 Sodexo host countries.

In 1999 Sodexo Foundation was created, a not-for-profit organization committed to ending childhood hunger in America. Sodexo Foundation supports innovative programs to help children and families in the United States who are at-risk of hunger. From nutrition programs for children to engaging youth in hunger-fighting community service activities, the Foundation supports hunger-related initiatives on local, state, and national levels. Sodexo, Inc. funds all administrative costs for Sodexo Foundation to ensure that all money raised is directed to those in need. Since its inception, Sodexo Foundation has made nearly $20 million in grants to end childhood hunger.

DID YOU KNOW.......??? 

Farm facts: 

Nearly 90 percent of U.S. cattle farms and ranches are family-owned and operated. Approximately two-thirds have been under the same family ownership for two generations or more.

Grazing animals on land not suitable for producing crops more than doubles the land area that can be used to produce food. 

In fact, 85 percent of the land where cattle graze is not suitable for raising crops, thus grazing animals on this land increases the amount of food produced for people here in the U.S. as well as abroad.

If 1955 technology were used to produce the amount of beef raised today, 165 million more acres of land would be needed – that’s about the size of Texas! 

Cattle serve a valuable role in the ecosystem by converting plants humans cannot consume into a nutrient-dense food. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. Beef provides the most readily available and easily absorbed source of iron. In fact, just one 3-ounce serving of beef supplies 51 percent of the Daily Value (DV) for protein, 38 percent of the DV for zinc and 14 percent of the DV for iron. 



Cattle ranches support a lot more than just cattle. The same land that provides food and open space for raising cattle also offers a home for many types of wildlife, including threatened and endangered species of fish, mammals, birds and plants. Farmers and ranchers help wildlife by providing feed, delaying hay harvest until after nesting season and maintaining or restoring native plants and grasses. 

Beef producers and cattle ranching families are serious about caring for the land, which sustains them and their families. They work hard to protect the land as well as their livestock.

************************

According to an article published by Washington State University, "Advances in productivity over the past 30 years have reduced the carbon footprint and overall environmental impact of U.S. beef production, according to a new study presented today by a WSU researcher.

Capper
In Comparing the environmental impact of the US beef industry in 1977 to 2007, assistant professor of animal science Jude L. Capper revealed that improvements in nutrition, management, growth rate and slaughter weights, have significantly reduced the environmental impact of modern beef production and improved its sustainability."

For more on this, go to:


 For America’s cattle farmers and ranchers, the land is not just where they raise cattle; it’s also where they raise their families.

They have a personal stake in the quality of their environment – so they are always looking for new ways to improve the air, water and land on and near their property. 


Water is a source of life for everyone on the farm, including the cattle, the wildlife and the families that raise and protect them. Water, whether drinking water for people, cattle and wildlife or irrigation water for crops, is essential for maintaining farm life. Beef producers’ everyday water conservation efforts include conducting water quality tests, fencing off streams to protect the fish and waterways and creating man-made irrigation ponds. 

With fall comes a new slate of chores:
the end of haying and harvesting,

working and weaning calves, etc...

getting equipment ready for winter!
