Saskatchewan producers and livestock dealers have been paying a provincial and federal levy since April 2012. The levy or check-off, as it is also known, is collected by SCA on the sale of cattle in Saskatchewan.

​The $4.50 check-off is used to finance the operations of SCA and to help achieve the objectives outlined in the National Beef Strategy. Of the $4.50 collected $2.50 is a non-refundable national levy paid to the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off agency and the remaining $2.00 funds the SCA’s operations including research, advocacy and communications.
