Farm Forum

St. Onge Livestock (11693 Sale Barn Rd.) will host a rollover calf sale fund-raiser at 1 p.m. on Nov. 8. R-CALF USA Checkoff Committee Chair Vaughn Meyer will speak at the event. Long-time member and supporter Carol Hendrickson will donate a steer calf for the fund-raiser in memory of her husband Chuck Hendrickson who passed away March 15, 2019. For many years Carol and Chuck Hendrickson have donated a calf every year with proceeds going to R-CALF USA.

Rollover auctions are fundraising events put on by R-CALF USA volunteers to raise money for the organization. Those who wish to support the efforts of R-CALF USA can bid on the calf, then donate it back so it can be auctioned off again and again, until bidding ceases.

R-CALF USA is a one-member/one-vote organization. Voting members must own cattle. Associate members support the cause and do not own cattle. Activities carried out by R-CALF USA for the benefit of the U.S. cattle industry are funded exclusively by the independent cattle producers who pay their membership dues and by cattle producers, main-street businesses, and other individuals who participate in and contribute to fund-raising events.

R-CALF USA works on various issues that affect the continued profitability and viability of independent U.S. cattle producers, such as mandatory country-of-origin labeling, checkoff reform, animal identification, livestock price reporting, animal health concerns, captive supplies and packer ownership of livestock, as well as various trade agreements.
