BEEF PRODUCERS APPROVE CHECKOFF
Debra Davis
(334) 613-4686
November 19, 2003

Unofficial results show 57 percent of cattle owners who voted in the Alabama Beef Checkoff Referendum Nov. 18 favored reactivating the voluntary self-help assessment program. This 50-cents checkoff assessment will fund programs that benefit the individual cattle producer and the state's beef cattle industry, according to a release from the Alabama Cattlemen's Association. This is the ninth voluntary state beef checkoff referendum passed by cattle owners in Alabama since 1962.

Exact numbers in the vote were not released Tuesday afternoon, but officials with the Alabama Cattlemen's Association said official county-by-county results would be released as soon all signed county certification forms are collected.

"The producer-driven Alabama Cattlemen's Association is the certified organization to handle the funds and will work diligently with all segments of the state's cattle industry including State Department of Agriculture, Auburn University, auction markets and others in a continuing grassroots campaign to better the beef industry in Alabama," the Cattlemen's Association said in a release Wednesday afternoon.
