The article focuses on beef demand that has plunged for 6 consecutive quarters, according to the data provided by the Retail Beef Demand Index. According to sources, the industry is not gaining much ground in providing consumers with the predictable eating experiences they crave, depending on how consumers look at the 2005 U.S. National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA). However, the current demand and NBQA realities serve as reminders about all it took to initially stem the freefall in beef demand.
