Kentucky Cattlemen's Association Requests Referendum on Proposed $1 Assessment

cattleFRANKFORT, Ky. (8/18/14) — The Kentucky Cattlemen's Association has asked the Kentucky State Board of Agriculture for approval to conduct a statewide referendum of Kentucky beef cattle producers on a proposed state assessment of $1 per head of cattle marketed in the state.

The request is on the agenda for the board's meeting Aug. 21 in Louisville. If the board approves the request, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture will be required by state law to conduct the referendum.

In a letter dated Aug. 11, KCA Executive Vice President Dave Maples wrote that the assessment would be used "to promote [and] stimulate, by research, market development, and education, the use and sale, domestic and foreign, of bovine animal products."

If approved by producers, the assessment would become effective April 1, 2015.
