Dairy Promotion Referendum

— Written By Sherry Ramsey

Dairy farmers will be voting in a Dairy Promotion Referendum on Thursday, May 18, 2017. The Referendum is on the question of continuing the 10¢ assignment to dairy promotion programs in North Carolina already allowed under the National Checkoff for milk advertising and promotion. With a favorable vote in the Referendum, the 10¢ per cwt. will continue to fund dairy promotion activities in North Carolina. Without a favorable vote, all funds generated by the checkoff will go to the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board, leaving no local promotion money in North Carolina.

Voting will take place here at the Extension Office on Thursday, May 18, 2017 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please call our office 336-694-4158 for more information.
