North Carolina Assessment Referendum

Below is an email from our good friend Bryan Blinson from the NC Cattlemen's Association. If you are a NC Cattle producer or have an interest in NC Agriculure, please read below and VOTE! If you have any questions feel free to contact us at Thanks - Dustin.

Dear Members and Supporters of the NC Cattlemen’s Association,

One week from today, on Tuesday, October 6 as you know, the North Carolina Cattle Assessment Referendum will be conducted at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Centers.
Please make sure that all producers are aware that they are eligible to vote on the referendum.
An affirmative vote by producers would provide the industry in North Carolina with funds that would be used in the following five categories; Youth Development, Research, Promotion, Education and Issues Management.
These funds would be for use in the state. The expenditures of these funds would be determined within these five categories by cattle producers.
If you have any questions about the referendum, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank You,

Bryan Blinson
Executive Director
