The Alabama Sheep & Goat Checkoff will conduct a referendum Oct. 22, 2019, to determine if the program should be continued for five more years at the current collection rate of 50 cents per head of sheep or goat sold in the state. The program funds sheep and goat research, product promotion and farmer education.
Any producer of goats and/or sheep in the state of Alabama is eligible to cast a vote but must vote in person at their local Alabama Cooperative Extension System office. Producers will be able to vote between 8 a.m. and the close of business.
For more information regarding the referendum, contact Brady Ragland at (334) 613-4221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
