Alabama Catfish Producers go to the polls Jan. 16 to decide whether the state catfish checkoff program should be continued five more years at the current rate of $1 per ton of feed manufactured or sold in Alabama. Producers who purchased feed within 30 days of the referendum may vote.
If approved, checkoff funds would be used to finance research, education and promotion activities aimed at further developing the state’s multi-million-dollar catfish industry.
Polling stations are at Alfa Insurance offices in Selma, Eutaw, Linden, Marion and Livingston and the Alabama Fish Farming Center in Greensboro.
Voting is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. No proxy voting is allowed, and no ballots are accepted by mail. Questions? Contact Mitt Walker at 1 (800) 392-5705, ext. 4757, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
