Colin Woodall on The Battle Over the Beef Check-off

Colin Woodall on The Battle Over the Beef Check-off

On today’s Beef Buzz Ron Hays talks with Colin Woodall, CEO of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Assoc. about the “battle over the Beef Check-off.”

The NCBA supports the USDA in its efforts to retain oversight of the federal beef check-off program following litigation by R-CALF USA against the Montana Beef Council and several other state Beef Councils, claiming the program was not legal.

The oversight from USDA works and the firewall works to make sure no check off dollars go towards lobbying, said Woodall.

“Being able to depend on this ruling allows us to focus on promotion and not spending time in the courtroom,” said Woodall.

Woodall said it would have been incredibly bad if the money collected from the check-off would not accomplish anything.
Woodall spoke strongly about R-CALF’s attempt to waste producers’ money.

“We need to hold R-CALF responsible for hurting this industry,” said Woodall. A final ruling is expected this spring.

Woodall makes it clear the NCBA is not the check-off.

The NCBA is one of eight contractors of the check-off and there are internal audits to support us, said Woodall.
