Cattle Industry Board; assessment from sale of cattle. Renames the Beef Industry Council as the Cattle Industry Board (the Board) and renames the Virginia Beef Industry Fund as the Virginia Cattle Industry Fund (the Fund). The bill simplifies the definition of the term "cattle," reduces the size of the Board from 15 to seven members, and allows the Board to elect officers who are not members of the Board. The bill increases the amount of the assessment from the sale of cattle from $0.25 per head to $1 per head; the assessment continues to be deposited in the Fund to support Board activities. The bill allows producers who are dissatisfied with the assessment and the Board's use of it to receive a refund. Finally, the bill distinguishes the National Beef Checkoff from the assessment-supported Fund. Read the Bill »
