Oklahoma Cattlemen Voting on Secondary Beef Checkoff

 

Oklahoma farm broadcaster Ron Hays joined us to talk about the secondary beef checkoff now being voted on in that state.  Funds generated by the secondary $1 per head checkoff would be used exclusively by the Oklahoma Beef Council.  The vote has not been without controversy.  Both the Organization for Competitive Markets and R-CALF USA are urging cattlemen to vote against the additional checkoff and threatening possible legal action.
