In a state with more cattle than people, the Montana Beef Council is proud to promote the beef industry on behalf of beef and dairy producers who work hard every day to provide care to their animals and produce high quality beef.
Learn more about the Beef Checkoff, how MBC is investing your checkoff dollars and about the programs and resources available to producers.
The Beef Checkoff Program was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products.

Producers are encouraged to attend MBC meetings to meet their fellow beef-producer board members and hear first-hand about how their checkoff dollars are invested.
Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common-sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions.
