The Federation of State Beef Councils
Throughout its history, the Federation of State Beef Councils provides a framework from which Qualified State Beef Councils have derived their national voice in the Beef Checkoff Program since 1963. It operates within the Beef Promotion Act and Order of 1985. Together with other checkoff partners, it helps provide a professional beef demand-building team, guided by a broad coalition of volunteer beef producer leaders, operating under a Vision and Statement of Beliefs that serves U.S. producers throughout the entire industry.
Those concepts have been clarified and ratified by the Federation board in a Charter of Principles.
