East Central Ia
One could argue that the checkoff is working as I saw ribeye steaks last night in the store for 19$ a pound. So one would say yes the checkoff is working as beef is high in the retail display case. The problem is it's not working for the people and producers that pay it. Allot of producers in my area have expressed concerns that the checkoff isn't working for them. As producers we have watched our share of the retail dollar go down but yet we have to read about how well the checkoff is doing for us. Was our share going to go to zero if we didn't have the checkoff? I don't think anyone will argue we are not better off today than were were before the checkoff started.
