Montana Beef Council Producer Consent Forms

A recent court decision, prohibiting USDA from allowing the Montana Beef Council to finance its work, unless a rancher gives prior consent, authorizing the council to retain a portion of his or her assessment is a detriment to Montana’s part in driving demand for our product.

We encourage you to sign an official consent form, which is located below.

By law, you must pay the beef checkoff. However, as a result of this decision, unless you provide prior consent authorizing the Montana Beef Council to retain a portion of your assessment, then all of your of your money will be sent to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board in Denver, CO.

We encourage you to keep the 50 Cents of your Federal $1-per-head Beef Checkoff in Montana!

Complete your form and send to the Montana Beef Council, P.O. Box 80865, Billings, MT 59108 or emailed to: Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
