Producer support of beef checkoff remains high

Aug. 9, 2012 | 0 comments

Support for the beef checkoff remains high, despite weather and economic pressures facing the industry. This is according to a recent survey of U.S. beef and dairy producers.

Checkoff support, at 74 percent - about even with January 2012 findings - remains at historic highs.

The nationwide survey of 900 beef and dairy producers was conducted by the independent firm Aspen Media & Market Research in late June and early July.

The survey found that an overwhelming majority of beef and dairy producers continue to believe that their beef checkoff has value for them in many ways:

• Eight out of 10 producers say the beef checkoff has helped to contribute to a positive trend in beef demand.

• Seven out of 10 producers say the beef checkoff contributes to the profitability of their operations, is there for them in a crisis, and represents their interests.

• Two in three beef producers believe the checkoff is well managed.

"Despite being challenged by drought, economic uncertainty and groups that would like to see us go out of business, beef and dairy producers continue to see more in their Beef Checkoff Program than just paying for a few ads or a few promotions," says Joint Producer Communications Committee (JPCC) Chairman Hank Maxey Jr., a producer from Chatham, VA.

"I'm one of the seven out of 10 who have seen that the checkoff 'has helped contribute to the profitability' of our own operations," he added.

One of the key priorities of the checkoff committee Maxey chairs is to 'increase the understanding of how the checkoff works … how [it] benefits them and their role as stakeholders,' he notes.
