Legislation Headed to the Desk of the Governor to Move Toward a State Beef Checkoff
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 05:45:50 CDT
The Oklahoma Legislature has been moving a bill this session that would allow the beef industry in Oklahoma (as well as other federally authorized checkoff programs) the right to petition for a state level checkoff. In the case of the Beef industry, this state beef checkoff could run parallel with the federal dollar a head beef checkoff.
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes with Michael Kelsey of the OCA.
Michael Kelsey of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association is pleased that the measure has passed both the state House and Senate and will soon be sent on to the Governor for her expected signature.
He explains what the measure is, why it is needed and how the process of getting a vote by cattle producers of such a checkoff would work. Kelsey offers this explanation on today's Beef Buzz.
This past week, we reported on a similar effort in Texas that is further along, as Texas cattle producers will be voting on a state beef checkoff in June of this year. Click here for our story on this effort in the Lone Star state.
