The Georgia Beef Board is proud to work on behalf of Georgia's Beef Producers by working in the areas of education, promotion, and research. Learn more about the Beef Checkoff and the programs available to you.
The Beef Checkoff Program is a producer-funded marketing and research program designed to increase domestic and/or international demand for beef. This can be done through promotion, research and new product development, and a variety of other marketing tools.
Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry. Begin your training to earn BQA certification.
By law, all producers selling cattle or calves, for any reason and regardless of age or sex, must pay $1-per-head to support beef/veal promotion, research and information through the Beef Promotion and Research Act created by the 1985 Farm Bill. In 2015, Georgia added the Agricultural Commodity Commission for Beef, which is funded through an additional assessment of up to $1 per head. The commission supports research, promotion and education for Georgia’s beef industry.
Funding through the ACC for Beef has been instrumental in funding research, education and promotion for Georgia's cattle industry.
