MANHATTAN, KAS. — Two educators representing the beef industry in the United States and Canada have established the North American Institute for Beef Economic Research earlier this month. NAIBER is a new economic research institute tasked with addressing issues such as global competitiveness, market structure concerns, changing feed grain markets, international market access, and consumer demand.
Ted Schroeder, professor of livestock marketing at Kansas State University, Manhattan and Kurt Klein, of the University of Lethridge, Alberta, Canada, are heading the institute. The organization plans to identify and prioritize research issues, facilitate and conduct research, and provide access to research results and information for the beef industry players throughout North America.
