THANKS FOR “CHOOSING COTTON” – AMENDMENT 1 PASSES
Alabama voters overwhelming supported Amendment 1 on the cotton checkoff in the July 15 primary runoff elections. Passage of the amendment means cotton farmers may hold a referendum vote on making participation in the cotton checkoff automatic.
“The Federation is extremely thankful for our farmers who worked hard to get the word out about the importance of the cotton checkoff and this amendment,” said Alabama Farmers Federation Cotton Division Director Carla Hornady. “Now we will focus our efforts on scheduling the referendum.”
The cotton checkoff supports research, educational and promotional activities. The Alabama Farmers Federation will publish additional information on the referendum at AlfaFarmers.org once it is scheduled.
