These board members decide where producer check-off dollars are spent.

Dairy elections are broken down by districts at the county and township level and turkey elections are broken down by region. Producers who have not received a ballot in the past, may request one through either the council or Minnesota Department of Agriculture website at www.mda.state. mn.us/en/food/business/commodityballot.aspx.

Board members for the Minnesota Dairy Research and Promotion Council serve a two-year term.

In this area, there is one position open in District 5 (Todd County) and one in District 7 (Douglas, Stevens, Traverse, Pope, Grant counties).

Ballots will be mailed to producers January 10 and must be returned with a January 27 or earlier postmark. 

Board members on the Minnesota Turkey Research and Promotion Council serve a three year term.

Ballots will be mailed to producers January 17 and must be returned with a February 3 or earlier postmark. 

There is one position open in Region 1, which includes the area counties of Douglas, Pope, Otter Tail, Todd and Grant, among others.

There are also two grower-at-large positions and one breeder-at-large position open.
