The North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association (NCCA) has announced that the N. C. Cattle Industry Assessment Referendum vote will take place on October 4, 2018. The North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association will conduct a referendum to continue the N. C. Cattle Industry Assessment. Arrangements have been made with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension to facilitate the voting. The Extension offices in each county will be the polling places.

John Langdon, president of the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association, said that the referendum will be to assess all cattle sold and marketed in North Carolina one dollar per head for the purposes of advancing the cattle industry in the state. The money collected will continue to fund the following five areas: youth programs, cattle research, education, promotion of North Carolina cattle and beef, and issues management. The North Carolina dairy industry will also benefit from the funds collected, as a portion of the income will be allocated to the same areas within the dairy sector.

All cattle owners who are at least 18 years of age as of October 4, 2018, will be eligible to vote. Voting will take place locally at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension offices. All eligible voters must vote in their county of residence. Absentee ballots may be obtained by contacting the North Carolina Cooperative Extension office. In Currituck County, cattle owners can vote at the Cooperative Extension Office located at 120 Community Way in Barco. In Camden County, voting will take place at the Cooperative Extension Office located at 120 HWY 343N in Camden.

For additional details on voting procedures or funding information, please contact your local county office of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, or the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association.
