Terms of Use for Beef Images and Recipes

The Beef Checkoff-funded Images and Recipes section of BeefRetail.org is designed to make it easy for you to find recipes and images to support your marketing needs. Use the images “as is” or re-size to fit your individual needs.

The images included in the Images and Recipes section of BeefRetail.org are 300 dpi up to 5” x 7”. Higher-resolution images are available for some shots; please contact us for more information.
