Join the United Soybean Board (USB) on the 2014 See for Yourself program. This event provides 10 U.S. soybean farmers with an opportunity to see their soy checkoff in action both at home and abroad. To help show what these farmers are learning and inform other soybean farmers about the soy checkoff, USB invites two members of the agricultural media to attend the 2014 program.
If you would like to be considered for selection to attend the 10-day program, fill out the online application today. Selected media representatives will be contacted by March 1. Travel expenses are eligible for reimbursement by USB. To learn more about the program, visit the See for Yourself webpage on the USB website. Please fill out the application by 5 p.m. Central Time, Friday, Jan. 24.
The 70 farmer-directors of USB oversee the investments of the soy checkoff to maximize profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers. These volunteers invest and leverage checkoff funds to increase the value of U.S. soy meal and oil, to ensure U.S. soybean farmers and their customers have the freedom and infrastructure to operate, and to meet the needs of U.S. soy’s customers. As stipulated in the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soy checkoff.For more information on the United Soybean Board, visit www.unitedsoybean.org
