Supporting the Beef Checkoff

Support for the beef checkoff among its investors remains high, according to a recent survey of beef and dairy producers nationwide. In fact, the survey found that three out of four producers support the checkoff, while the number of those who “disapprove” of the program – at 11 percent – is the lowest in program history. The random survey, conducted by Aspen Media & Market Research in December 2014 and January 2015 further found that an overwhelming majority of beef and dairy producers believe their checkoff provides value in many ways. Get more at 2015 Survey, and read Aspen’s overview at Survey Topline.
