Alabama’s 10th Beef Checkoff Referendum since 1962 easily passed again last week as the state’s cattlemen approved renewing the program by an 87 percent margin.
More than 1,100 votes were cast, representing each of Alabama’s 67 counties.
“We’re all glad to see our state checkoff continue," said Orland Britnell, president of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association and cattle producer from Russellville. "It’s a self-help program we use to hold producer meetings, publish educational materials, train young people and, of course, promote beef.”
