Take a #beefie for Great British Beef Week

Ladies in Beef, who run Great British Beef Week, are asking people take a #beefie – the bovine version of a #selfie.

In just another way the public can celebrate Great British Beef Week and help spread the word, people have been taking pictures of themselves with their cattle or a meal made with British beef on Twitter, using the hashtag #beefie.

Farmers, butchers and many more besides have been posting smiling snapshots on the net since British Beef Week started on Wednesday 23 April, St George’s Day.

Great British Beef Week, which is running until Sunday 3 May this year, has seen a big PR promotion push on radio, as well as social media campaigns such as #beefie. It is an annual celebration of the British beef industry and is timed each year to coincide with St George’s Day. It is supported both locally, with regional events, and nationally, by the UK’s biggest supermarkets.
