The beef R&P program operates as the Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board. The program's goal is to maintain and expand domestic and foreign markets and uses for beef and beef products. The program is funded by a mandatory assessment of $1 per head collected each time cattle are sold. Imported cattle, beef, and beef products have a comparable assessment.
