Checkoff Remittance Process

All sheep or lambs of any age, including ewes and rams, are subject to the national lamb checkoff assessment (all feeder and market lambs and all breeding stock and cull animals) at the time of sale. Each producer, feeder or seedstock producer is obligated to pay the weight portion of the assessment and pass it on to the subsequent purchaser ultimately reaching the first handler or exporter, who will remit the total assessment. If a person is both producer and first handler, they will be responsible for remitting both assessments directly to ALB.
