Ag Law Center to Host Webinar on State & Federal Checkoff Programs

News Article -

Checkoff programs, commonly referred to as research and promotion programs, are designed to promote and provide research and information for a particular agricultural commodity without reference to specific producers or brands.  State and federal checkoff programs for beef, soybeans, rice, pork, and many other commodities play a critical role in supporting industry promotion, information, and research programs.  Additionally, the programs are important to states’ departments of agriculture, states’ farm bureaus, the land grant university system, producers, and others.  Checkoff programs are increasingly the target of litigation efforts as well as important regulatory developments.  This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview and update on recent and emerging legal issues involving state and federal checkoff programs.
