Kerry Dockter, the president of the Independent Beef Association of North Dakota, joined our Feb. 10 edition of KX Conversation to discuss I-BAND’s support of House Bill 1487.
The bill would make the $1 state beef checkoff that was implemented in the 2015 legislative session voluntary. There was support for this bill statewide, but the House Ag Committee voted it down 11-2.
We asked Dockter why he thinks that is, and also discussed House Bill 1475 and its correlation to showcasing North Dakota born, raised and processed beef.
That bill is still alive.
