Check-Off Increase in British Columbia
July 1st marked the official increase to the federal levy for producers in British Columbia, who have now increased to $2.50. Eight of nine provinces have now increased their check-off in support of the National Beef Strategy and the goals it set forth. If you are a producer buying or selling cattle in these provinces, or a dealer or auction mart collecting the levy and have questions about the increase, please reach out to your provincial cattle association. They’re ready and available to help you through the transition.
