USDA's Role In The Checkoff

Congress created a governmental entity – the Beef Board – to carry out the Beef Act’s program, and the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture elaborated upon the powers and duties set out in the Act with development of the Beef Order. Congress delegated to USDA the responsibility for implementation and oversight of the Beef Promotion and Research Act and all associated beef checkoff programs.
