Cattlemen Urged To “Check Yes” In Referendum
The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association (ACA) will conduct a statewide vote among cattle owners Oct. 24 to determine if the Alabama Beef Checkoff Program will continue, in accordance with Alabama law.
The vote is open to all cattle owners in Alabama (no age restrictions apply) and will take place at statewide county Extension offices from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
The Alabama Beef Checkoff Program provides funding for programs implemented each year in areas of beef promotion, beef cattle research, educational programs for cattlemen and youth events.
“The Alabama Beef Checkoff is invaluable to cattle owners in this state,” said ACA President and Limestone County cattleman Jack Batts. “You would be hard-pressed to find another program that generates as much bang for the buck in terms of promoting our product and providing educational opportunities for cattlemen and youth. I urge everyone to check yes when they go vote this month.”
