It’s easy to get swept up by the itch for something different, change for change’s sake. But, it’s important to do your homework, because there are many reasons producers still value the Beef Checkoff, Hanes says.
The Cattlemen's Beef Promotion Operating Committee will meet in Denver, Colorado, Sept. 9 and 10 to discuss, debate and ultimately allocate around $40 million for eligible beef industry programs within the Beef Checkoff.
Cattlemen's Beef Board CEO Greg Hanes says the Beef Checkoff was "designed by producers, for producers, to build value by focusing on key areas of research and promotion to drive demand for our beef around the world."
In the few months since Greg Hanes became CEO of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board he says "there appears to be many misperceptions, false rumors, and misinformation about how the checkoff works and is administered."
