Farm Forum

The North American Limousin Foundation nominating committee has selected the candidates for the 2016 board of directors’ election. The election will be held at the annual meeting on January 11, 2016, in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show. Here are the candidates named by the nominating committee:

• Dexter Edwards, Beulaville, N.C., second term

• Austin Hager, Karlsruhe, N.D., second term

• Jim Bob Hendrickson, Pryor, Okla., second term

• Mark Barker, Newcastle, Okla., first term

• Greg Blaydes, Midway, Ky., first term

If the nominating committee did not slate you or your potential candidate, you or your potential candidate may petition as a member-at-large.

To qualify as a member-at-large, the candidate must have at least 15 qualifying signatures from lifetime, founder, or annual members on the petition style form available on the NALF website, or 15 letters of support may be used in replacement of the signature form. The completed form or letters must be in the NALF office by October 15.

All candidates (nominated or member-at-large) will have their biographies published in the December issue of Limousin World and will be placed on the official ballot.

If you are not able to attend the annual meeting (during the NWSS), you may request an official ballot from the NALF office prior to December 1. You must submit a letter to the NALF office requesting an absentee ballot. A form letter is available on the NALF website to place the request.
