A referendum to establish a millet marketing order funded by an assessment on every bushel of millet sold in Colorado failed. A total of 308 votes were received, with 164 "no" votes and 144 "yes" votes.

The High Plains Millet Association spearheaded the effort to establish a marketing order following legislation that passed this year to include millet in the Marketing Act of 1939.
