Kim Brackett, Cattlemen's Beef Board secretary/treasurer and beef producer from Buhl, Idaho, says she only uses her desktop computer once or twice a week for bookkeeping and the rest of her activity is done on her mobile phone or iPad.

"I use my phone because I'm always on the go. I don't travel with my laptop anymore but still need quick access to information when I'm at a meeting or with kids at school or sorting calves in the corral," says Brackett. "The mobile version of the site is so easy to navigate and it brings me up-to-speed immediately. As an officer, I feel the most useful tool on the site is evaluation information. This not only helps me know and understand where my dollar investment is going, but explain to fellow producers how their checkoff is helping to fund programs that are building beef demand."
