Noble Research Institute Supports the Implementation of Proposed State Oklahoma Beef CheckoffWed, 25 Oct 2017 09:43:13 CDT
Oklahoma beef producers have the opportunity to decide on the implementation of a voluntary Oklahoma Beef Checkoff program.
If passed, this state-level checkoff will be a promotion, marketing, research and education program for beef and beef products. The program will be managed by Oklahoma Beef Council and will cost producers $1 per head.
The Noble Research Institute, the nation's largest nonprofit agriculture research organization, supports the Oklahoma Beef Checkoff and encourages beef producers across the state to vote YES.
The checkoff offers Oklahoma producers a greater ability to market their products, defend beef from misleading claims and activists – something that producers cannot do on an individual basis – and provide invaluable public education about this heritage industry. Additionally, for every dollar invested, there is an estimated $11.20 return. Additional information may be found at: www.oklahomabeefcheckoff.com
Any beef producer, regardless of age, who will be required to pay the assessment, is eligible to vote in the referendum. The timeframe to receive a mail-in ballot has passed but beef producers can still vote in-person on Nov. 1 at any county extension office during their normal business hours. Any producers who did obtain mail-in ballots during the allotted window must have them postmarked by Oct. 27, 2017, otherwise they will be invalid.
