Effective Jan. 1, 2023, the US Pork Checkoff rate will be reduced by 5 cents to $0.35 per $100 of value. This change is a result of a resolution passed by voting delegates at the 2022 Pork Industry Forum.

Pork Checkoff payments are collected for all pigs sold with a change of ownership. This includes sales of weaned pigs, breeding age animals and at the final market destination. The Pork Checkoff is mandated by the Pork Promotion, Research, Consumer Information Act.

The rate change was a recommendation of the Pork Industry Vision Task Force – a group of 19 leaders from NPB, NPPC and various state associations – as a means to ensure the US pork industry’s long-term success.
