Checking In on the Beef Checkoff - Checkoff Operating Committee Sets the Fiscal Year 2019 Budget


Checking In on the Beef Checkoff is a new series the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and the Oklahoma Farm Report is proud to offer in partnership with the Oklahoma Beef Council. Over the next several weeks, we invite you to join us as we highlight some of the efforts being undertaken by the Beef Checkoff to promote beef on behalf of producers. This week, Heather Buckmaster, executive director of the Oklahoma Beef Council, visits with us about the Checkoff’s FY19 budget and how it was set by beef producers from across the country. Listen to Buckmaster speak with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about this topic, by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.



According to Buckmaster, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board Operating Committee met recently to set the Checkoff’s budget for the coming year. Buckmaster says those on the committee have chosen to invest $40.5 million during 2019 in programs of promotion, research, consumer information, industry information, foreign marketing and producer communications.


“I think what’s always important to remember is that the decisions made, are made by beef producers,” Buckmaster said, explaining that the committee consists of ten producers from the Beef Board and ten producers from the Federation of State Beef Councils. “They’re the ones that wade through the different proposals and they work very hard to make the best decisions for producers.”
