Pork Checkoff

Today's pork checkoff is at work for pork producers.  U.S. pork producers and importers pay $0.40 per $100 of value when pigs are sold and when pigs or pork products are brought into the United States. Checkoff dollars are put towards pork promotion, research and dissemination of consumer information.

Each hog raising state receives checkoff dollars based on the formula above.  For example, checkoff funds are funneled through the USDA, to the National Pork Board and disseminated to each state association for state organized pork promotions, education and research and consumer information.  The Illinois Pork Producers Association is responsible for these dollars and using them according to checkoff guidelines set forth by the USDA.
