THE BEEF CHECKOFF It’s the law - no one is exempt!
DID YOU KNOW?
Beef Promotion & Research Program Private Treaty Sales Checkoff Investment Form
• Every time you sell a bovine animal, regardless of age, sex, breed, purpose or number, a dollar-per-head is due. • The dollar is to be collected by the buyer from the seller, although both parties are responsible. • The checkoff is designed so that everyone pays their fair share.
• Beef and veal television, radio and print advertising. • Food safety, health and nutritional research. • Product technology and development. • Educating consumers and children about beef’s role in a healthy diet. • Refuting issues that could negatively impact the industry.
HOW ARE CHECKOFF DOLLARS BEING USED?
• When cattle are sold, the buyer of the cattle must withhold $1 per head from the seller’s purchase price. Failure to do so is a violation of the law and may be subject to a $5,500 penalty.
HOW DO YOU PAY?
• Complete a remittance form and send it with your check to the Georgia Beef Board, PO Box 116797, Atlanta, GA 30368-6797. For more forms, call the Georgia Beef Board at 877-444-BEEF.
