Beef Industry Considers Restoring State Checkoff

George Quackenbush | June 1, 2023

On July 20, 2023, the Michigan Beef Industry Commission will be considering the proposal to restart Michigan’s state checkoff.  The proposed state checkoff rate is 10 cents per $100 in value, capped at $1 per head and would be collected alongside the current federal $1 per head checkoff.   The proposal will be discussed at online listening sessions hosted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development at 10:00 am on June 29, 2023 and at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm on July 13, 2023.  All meetings are open to the public.
