Randy Bass shares a U.S. beef dinner with young Japanese baseball players
CLICK HERE to listen to the full report…
Beef and baseball are a winning combination in Japan as they are in the United States. To capitalize on that double-header pairing, USMEF recently involved Japanese baseball legend and Oklahoma state Senator Randy Bass in an extremely popular campaign to promote U.S. beef in Japan.
With coordination provided by the Oklahoma Beef Council, USMEF brought the two-time Japanese triple crown winner back to the scene of his spectacular baseball success to serve as headliner for a campaign to promote U.S. beef for yakiniku dishes.
Since Japan expanded access for U.S. beef earlier this year to include product from cattle up to 30 months of age, USMEF-Japan and its partners in the Japanese yakiniku industry have collaborated on a variety of promotional programs to let consumers know that popular U.S. beef – particularly beef tongue – is again being featured in the tabletop-grill cuisine.
As part of the fecent promotion, USMEF offerws baseballs and bats autographed by Bass as prizes in a drawing. To be eligible, consumers had to order the “Randy Bass Menu” at participating yakiniku chains nationwide.

BRIGGSDALE, CO – As a 4-H State Shooting Sports Ambassador, it is my duty to spread the word about 4-H Shooting Sports and to encourage others to become a part of the 4-H revolution. Being as young as I am, it is important for me to make a good first impression on the people I am speaking to so that they respect what I am saying and give me their attention. This means using all of the skills that I have learned in 4-H, the incredible organization that I am representing.
My name is Morgan Patton. I am 15-years-old, have been in 4-H for eight years, and have been a member of 4-H shooting sports for three years. On the weekend of January 19 and 20, I had the opportunity to work at the State 4-H Shooting Sports booth at the International Sportsman’s Exposition in Denver. There, I was able to speak to adults as well as kids about their interests and whether or not they were involved in 4-H. I was able to offer information and answers to questions. I was also there to encourage families to sign up for more information and to join the 4-H revolution.
