About the Idaho Beef CouncilThe Idaho Beef Council (IBC) is a state organization representing Idaho's beef ranchers. As of January 1, 2020, Idaho had 2.49 million head of cattle valued at $2.639 billion, making it the state's second largest agricultural industry behind dairy. IBC was created in 1967 by the Idaho legislature as a marketing organization to increase consumer demand for beef. It is funded by the beef checkoff program - a $1.50 per head assessment on the sale of cattle in Idaho. The funds generated from this are used to support promotion, research and education programs at home and abroad.
The Idaho Beef Council Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from each of the state's industry sectors: Cow/Calf Producers, CattleWomen Producers, Dairy Farmers, Cattle Feeders, and Livestock Markets. IBC board members are nominated by their respective organizations and appointed by the Governor for a three-year term. For more information, visit www.idbeef.org.
