Texas cattle raisers will soon cast their vote on a referendum to establish a refundable assessment on cattle sales or ownership transfer in Texas.

And Thursday morning cattle experts will hold a question and answer session before voting begins.

The Beef Checkoff Forum is tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. at the Wichita Livestock Sales Company on U.S. 281.

There is no charge to attend and lunch will be provided.

Eligible cattle producers will vote to determine if a refundable maximum assessment of $1 will be collected at each point of ownership transfer.

Voting is June 2nd - 6th  at any Texas AgriLife Extension Office.

If approved, the referendum will begin October 1st.
