USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service is seeking input from the public to guide its development of a new industry-funded promotion, research and information order (also known as a "checkoff program") for beef and beef products.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue appointed 27 members to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board.
The beef checkoff returns $11.20 on every dollar invested in the program and has been around for 30 years.
