Beef checkoff plebiscite extended until Nov. 27

The plebiscite on making the $2-per-head provincial cattle checkoff non-refundable has been extended by two weeks, and so voting will continue until Nov. 27.

The Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council “recognized that the terrible weather during September and early October left many producers far behind on their harvest and other fall work in the fields during the plebiscite voting period,” said Alberta Beef Producers.

“Along with harvest weather conditions, Canada Post disruptions had the potential to further affect the movement of mail-in ballots.”

Cattle can vote at Agriculture Financial Services Corporation offices or by mail until the Nov. 27 deadline.
