There are many other contracting organizations. Anyone can present a project to the CBB which is a totally separate organization that controls the funds, and if that board believes it worthy they can award a contract. Remember, those contracts are on a cost recovery basis only, though, and not many groups are eager to do the work on that basis.
Contrary to your opinion, OT, NCBA did not refuse to hold a referendum on the checkoff. The law does not allow a referendum without a successful petition signed by a mere ten percent of cattle producers asking for such a vote. LMA, angry after they failed in stopping an NCBA project with which they disagreed, determined, as one of their directors, Herman Schumacher stated, " we had to go after the checkoff to stop NCBA".

I get tired of R-Calfers, MCA inferring all the BAD things going on "BEHIND CLOSED DOORS". Just like our leftist media, put a little "n-word" of a thought in someone's brain and get them thinking...
I personally wouldn't want an R-Calf person as chair on CBB because our checkoff $$$ are NOT supposed to create policy, nor to SUE!!! PERIOD!Our checkoff $$$$ are to PROMOTE our PRODUCT and EDUCATE the population about our PRODUCT!!!

Where do you get the idea that checkoff dollars are promoting a candidate ? the money NCBA may or may not have given to GW is from the membership dues, not from the checkoff as you claim.
