Consequently with the decline in the national beef numbers, Beef Checkoff budgets have taken a significant hit – but that hasn’t stopped the $1 investment per head of cattle sold program from accelerating in returns.
In the recent Checkoff Return on Investment study conducted by Dr. Harry Kaiser of Cornell University, it was found that the $1 investment into the Beef Checkoff program yields $11.20 in returns, announces Kaiser during the 2014 Cattle Industry Summer Conference.

- Cargill to close Milwaukee beef harvest facility
- Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame leaders recognized
- The fork in the road
