The national beef checkoff will increase to $2.50 per head (from $1) effective April 1. The increase levy will be used to support research, market development and promotion.
This increase was supported by provincial beef producers in every zone at the Alberta Beef Producers 2015 fall meetings. The increase to the national checkoff, along with the $2 provincial checkoff, will bring the total levy per head to $4.50. For more information, go to the Canada Beef website.
