See For Yourself Applications Now Available For Soybean Farmers

 

Farmers can see how their soybean checkoff dollar is being used to improve the price they receive for their soybeans.  The United Soybean Board is taking applications for the next See for Yourself Program.  David Hartke, chair of USB’s Audit & Evaluation committee, which sponsors See for Yourself says it’s a way for farmers to see the soy checkoff’s role in marketing to U.S. soy customers.

Ten farmers will participate in a trip to St. Louis and South America August 15-22 to look at domestic and foreign uses for U.S. soybeans.  The deadline is April 4th.  For more information visit the USB website.
