The checkoff-funded MBA program is a self-directed online training program designed to equip beef producers and industry allies with the information they need to be everyday advocates for the beef industry.
Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.
The Beef Promotion and Research Act and Order require collection of a mandatory $1-per-head beef checkoff assessment every time cattle are sold. The Act and Order authorize State beef councils to retain up to 50 cents per head of the mandatory $1-per-head checkoff assessment for in-State research and promotion programs conducted by the State beef council. The law requires that at least 50 cents of the mandatory $1-per-head checkoff assessment be forwarded to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board (Beef Board) to help fund national beef checkoff programs. Producers may use this form to request that Qualified State Beef Council (QSBC) send the full $1-per-head beef checkoff assessment from their individual cattle sales to the Beef Board and that the QSBC not retain any portion of the individual’s assessment for its direct programming efforts.
This “Producer Redirection of Checkoff Assessment Form” must be postmarked by the 15th of the month following the month the cattle were sold and mailed to the appropriate QSBC.
