The New York Beef Council (NYBC) was established as part of a mandatory beef checkoff in the 1985 farm bill. Producers voted in a referendum to retain $1 per head checkoff. Simply speaking every time a bovine is sold, dairy or beef, whether that be through an auction market, order buyer, private treaty, or in retail and freezer trade meat sales the mandatory $1-a-head checkoff is due.

In order to connect with producers and better provide the beef and dairy industry updates on the Beef Checkoff and checkoff funded activities the NYBC has launched a new monthly, electronic newsletter. To sign up to receive What’s for Dinner Wednesday emails, visit our homepage and enter you email:
