Voting for the proposed Texas Beef Checkoff will take place Monday, June 2, through Friday, June 6, to approve a refundable maximum assessment of $1 per head of cattle to fund this program. Eligible producers can vote at any Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service county office during each office’s regular business hours.

Any producer regardless of age who has owned cattle in Texas anytime between June 6, 2013, and June 6, 2014, is eligible to vote. Youth younger than 16 years of age must have a parent or guardian co-sign their ballot.

If an eligible producer is unable to access an Extension Service office, a mail-in ballot may be requested from the Texas Department of Agriculture between Monday, May 19, and Monday, June 2.

Contact person is Lance Williams, Texas Department of Agriculture, P.O. Box 12847, Austin, TX 78711. For more information, call 512-463-3285. Mail-in ballots must be postmarked no later than close of business Friday, June 6, in order to be counted.

The Texas Beef Check-off would be funded solely through this assessment on cattle. It is not paid for by taxpayer dollars and is not a government program. If approved, the assessment will be collected at each point of ownership transfer in Texas, beginning Oct. 1, and any assessments collected would be refundable upon request.

The program will be managed by Texas cattlemen and -women serving on the Beef Promotion and Research Council of Texas.

For more information about the Texas Beef Checkoff and the referendum, including voting locations and hours, visit www.texasagriculture.gov.
