Producer Redirection of Checkoff Assessments Form
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 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.
