Description

A deep dive into the controversial federal program that requires all U.S. cattle ranchers to contribute a total of $80 million a year into a beef promotion fund that many ranchers say squanders millions of dollars a year and which they have little or no control over. Our reporting took an in-depth look at expenditures, some illegally used for federal lobbying and some that appear to be clear conflicts of interest - including at the state level, where there had been little or no reporting until now.
