Subject: Dairy Referendum Announcement
NORTH CAROLINA DAIRY REFERENDUM
Dairy farmers in Chatham County 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.
Dairy farmers in Chatham County should check with the County Extension Office at 919-542-8202 if they have questions or call Elizabeth Moretz with the American Dairy Association of North Carolina at 828-406-9482. Voting in Chatham County will take place on Thursday, May 18, 2017 during the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the County Extension Office, located in the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center at 1192 US 64W Business, Pittsboro, NC. Voters and other visitors to the Extension and other Ag/Natural Resources Offices are asked to enter through the door on the west end of the building.
