An assessment of $0.074 per ton (based on $0.01 per bushel dry corn kernels) has been made on all corn silage produced in Texas effective June 1, 2012. This rate was established in a referendum by Texas corn farmers completed Jan. 23, 2012, in compliance with Texas Commodity Checkoff law.
This assessment is to be collected by the FIRST HANDLER with monthly deposit to the Texas Corn Producers Board effective June 1, 2012. Collections are to be made by the “first handler” whether sold, placed in private or government storage, warehouse receipt issued, cleaned for seed, processed or shipped.
