The Texas Department of Agriculture will conduct a referendum on the establishment of a refundable assessment on cattle sales or ownership transfer in Texas, also known as the beef check-off program.

Eligible producers may vote at any Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service county offices from Monday, June 2, until Friday, June 6, during regular business hours. The Wilson County Office of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office is located at 1420 Third St. -- basement of the Wilson County Courthouse -- in Floresville.

Only an individual or legal business entity who has owned cattle any time in Texas from June 6, 2013, to June 6, 2014, is eligible to vote in the referendum.

Eligible Texas producers of cattle will vote to determine if a refundable maximum assessment of $1 per head of cattle will be collected at each point of ownership transfer.

If an eligible producer is unable to access a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service county office, a ballot may be requested from the Texas Department of Agriculture no later than June 2.

The referendum results will be released after June 19. Fact sheets containing voting information on this referendum are available at the Wilson County Extension Office, or request one by calling 830-393-7357 or electronically by emailing

Additional information about the Texas Beef Check-off and referendum can be obtained by contacting Lance Williams, Texas Department of Agriculture, P.O. Box 12847, Austin, TX 78711, call 512-463-3285, or visit
