CORN GROWERS ASSOCIATION OF N. C. REFERENDUM

February 22 is the date when corn growers will vote on continuation of the self assessment program for six years.  The Board of Directors of the Corn Growers Association is asking that farmers assess themselves at a rate of 1.25 cents per bushel on all corn marketed in North Carolina.  The campaign to continue the assessment was announced on January 13 by President Dennis Waller at the North Carolina Commodities Conference of Corn, Cotton, Soybeans and Small Grain Producers at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham. 

 

Waller urged growers to continue the assessment program which is administered by the Corn Growers Association of North Carolina.  “As farmers, we must stay united and work together to survive in the farming industry,” said Waller.    The Association is involved in the following areas:  International and domestic marketing; research and education; grants to cooperative extension offices and legislation that will be helpful to corn growers and other farmers.  A 24-member Board of Directors, covering all the producing areas of North Carolina, governs the organization’s activities.  This Board also gives support to issues of a local nature that they believe will benefit farmers.

 

Growers may vote at local cooperative extension offices from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.   All farmers currently engaged in the production of corn, including tenants, sharecroppers, or other persons sharing in the production of income of corn are eligible to vote.  A 2/3 favorable vote is required to carry the referendum as authorized by Article 50, Chapter 106 of the General Statutes of North Carolina.   If approved the assessment shall be collected by the first handler or purchaser of the commodity from the producer, and remitted to the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, which remits the proceeds to the Association.   Any corn grower may get a refund of levied assessments from the Corn Growers Association of N. C.  A request for a refund should be made within 30 days from the date on which said assessment is collected.

Winter Storm Watch Update

1/6/2017 @ 7:15AM – The latest forecast trends the storm moving more northward, bringing higher anticipated accumulations for our area. We may now see 8″ of snow or more before the storm pulls out of our area. Temperatures for the weekend are predicted to remain well below freezing and may reach record lows in the single digits by Sunday night. Please take precautions now to protect water pipes and other essential items from freezing. Keep a check on elderly neighbors, friends, and family. Assist them if you can, and report any welfare concerns to local authorities. Also, please make plans for your pets and other animals during this cold weather. If you can, bring them indoors and make sure they have a supply of fresh water at all times. A frozen bowl of water for them to lick on is NOT adequate to provide their needs. MOST importantly, PLEASE STAY OFF THE ROADS if you do not absolutely have to travel! This is a good time to watch movies, read books or just interact with each other and enjoy the snowfall! Anybody got a good recipe for snow cream? Stay safe everyone!!!!

Winter Storm Watch

1/5/2017 @ 9:05AM – The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for our area, effective Friday through Saturday. A Watch means that conditions are favorable for the development of significant Winter Weather. Forecast models continue to converge on snowfall starting late Friday evening/night and continuing through Saturday afternoon. Confidence is still low on the exact amount of accumulation but there is a moderate probability of 4″ or more in our area. Continued cold air over us will contribute to longer effects from any frozen precipitation before it clears. Please make plans to stay indoors and off the roads during the storm for travel safety and to allow NCDOT to clear the highways adequately. We will continue to monitor the storm’s progress and take appropriate actions. Please stay tuned to local television and radio for the latest information, or visit the National Weather Service website at http://www.weather.gov.
