DID YOU KNOW?

Every time you sell live cattle of any age, breed, purpose or number directly to another person, you are responsible for making sure that the $1-per-head beef checkoff assessment is sent to the Vermont Beef Industry Council.

The dollar is to be collected by the buyer from the seller, although both parties are responsible.

If you sell meat from your cattle, you are also required to send one dollar per head to the Vermont Beef Industry Council.

The checkoff is designed so that everyone pays their fair share.

HOW ARE THE CHECKOFF DOLLARS BEING USED?

  • Beef and veal television, radio and print advertising.
  • Food safety, health and nutritional research.
  • Product technology and development.
  • Educating consumers and children about beef's role in a healthy diet.
  • Refuting issues that could negatively impact the industry.

WHO PAYS?

By federal law, all producers selling cattle or calves, for any reason and regardless of age, breed or purpose, must pay $1 per head to support beef/veal promotion, research and information through the Beef Promotion and Research Act. The person buying the cattle is responsible for collecting $1 per head from the seller and remitting these assessments to the Beef Checkoff Program. However, failure of the buyer to collect and remit the $1-per-head beef checkoff assessment does not relieve the seller of their obligation to pay the assessment. In addition, producers harvesting their own cattle with the intent of selling beef or beef products are responsible for remitting the beef checkoff assessment. Failure to remit the $1-per-head beef checkoff assessment is a violation of the law and may be subject to a $7,500 penalty.

HOW DO YOU PAY?

Complete a remittance form and send it with your check to the Vermont Beef Industry Council, Inc. - PO Box 151 - Middlebury, VT 05753.  For remittance forms, go to www.vtbic.org and click on the CHECKOFF tab, or call the Vermont Beef Board at (833) 488-2333 (833 4 VTBEEF).
