COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texans are asking the same question at grocery stores across the state: Where’s the beef?

John Sharp

In this week’s episode of “COVID-19, The Texas A&M System Responds,” John Sharp, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System, explores what went wrong, why it went wrong and what we need to do to fix the situation to better secure our food supply. 

“We are fortunate to have some of the world’s top researchers and economists teaching at Texas A&M and leading Texas A&M AgriLife,” Chancellor Sharp said. “This week, we tap into their vast knowledge to get a better understanding of why we are seeing changes in the market, and what this means to the future of Texas farmers and ranchers, as well as the consumers and the overall food chain.”

Patrick Stover

Chancellor Sharp joins Dr. Patrick J. Stover, vice chancellor and dean of Texas A&M AgriLife in the Texas A&M System and an international leader in biochemistry and nutrition, to talk about how mechanization and artificial intelligence can help strengthen our food chain. 

Dr. David P. Anderson

Chancellor Sharp also talks with Dr. David Anderson, an agricultural economist and professor at Texas A&M, as well as Dr. Bart Fischer, a rancher and co-director of the Agricultural and Food Policy Center at Texas A&M.

The show will air 7 p.m. Thursday on KAMU-TV in College Station and on other Texas public television affiliates. (Check your local listing in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Waco and Amarillo.)
