Cattle producers concerned about the future of the nation's beef checkoff are going straight to the President.
The following is portion of an article from Oklahoma Farm Report:
Cattle producers concerned about the future of the nation's beef checkoff are going straight to the President. A petition has been started on the White House website petitioning the Obama Administration not to hijack the beef checkoff. The petition is in response to US Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack announcing the possible creation of a second beef checkoff. This new checkoff would be controlled by the federal government and would likely not be coordinated with the existing checkoff. This proposal has been criticized particularly by the leadership of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
