On the agenda:

  • National Cattlemen’s Association Convention debrief and updates from President Bev Bigger and Mike Williams
  • California Cattle Council – California Cattlemen’s President Mark Lacey along with Billy Gatlin, and Kirk Wilbur will be in attendance to talk about the referendum and answer your questions

California is holding a referendum for producers (beef and dairy) to vote if we want to create a Cattle Council.  This will not be tied in any way to the Beef Check Off, and will be administered by a board of California Producers.  This Board will focus on live cattle issues, it cannot be used for legal defense or lobbying and can be used for research.  Voting is from 2/19 thought 3/22.  Producers should be receiving ballots about now. 

Attached are a 1-page FAQ and the 2-page brochure with more info.  You can also find more info here: http://calcattlecouncil.org

On behalf of President Bev Bigger and your VCCA Board of Directors we hope to see you at next week’s VCCA Meeting.
