The Northeast Team Beef hosted the Run for the Ribeye 10K
The Northeast Team Beef hosted the Run for the Ribeye 10K virtually, May 22 – 29. Participants laced up their shoes in support of Feeding America Food Banks across the region.
The Beef Checkoff program was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. States may retain up to 50 cents on the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval.
