Georgia beef producers are being reminded to get their votes in concerning the renewal of the Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commission for Beef. The marketing order to establish a $1 per head assessment on all cattle sold in Georgia for beef with a value over $100 started back in 2014 and it is required that the market order be voted on every three years for continuation.
The voting for the renewal of the assessment runs until May 30th. Beef producers should have received a ballot in the mail, but if not, call 1-855-327-6829 to get one.
Funds from the assessments are used to fund research, education and promotion projects for the Georgia cattle producers. In the three years since the assessment began, over one million dollars was committed to research projects with the University of Georgia and in-state education and promotions which impact producers in Georgia.
