High Plains Farm Credit Donates to Beef Battalion
High Plains Farm Credit partnered with CoBank’s sharing success program to donate $10,000 to the All American Beef Battalion (AABB). The AABB, also known as Steaks for Troops, is a group of individuals involved in the United States beef cattle industry working to support our service members and their families, both past and present. Their mission is to organize and sponsor steak feeds, entertainment and programs for Service Members and their families. The AABB is 100% funded by donations and have no paid administration. All donations are used to feed the service personnel and the AABB uses all volunteers to prepare, cook and serve the meals. Since inception in 2008, the AABB has fed over 380,000 steaks in 23 states. The picture below was an AABB steak feed for the 36th Annual Knucklebusters Award Banquet at McConnell Air Force Base.
