Soybean Farmers Invited to Apply for See for Yourself Program

U.S. soybean farmers over the age of 18 have the opportunity to participate in the See for Yourself program August 15th through the 22nd. This program gives soybean farmers an opportunity to learn more about their customers beyond the elevator and the soy checkoff's role in marketing U.S. soy to those customers. United Soybean Board Audit and Evaluation Committee Chair David Hartke says the See for Yourself program is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He says participants get the opportunity to see the checkoff up close and the work it does to improve the bottom lines for U.S. soybean farmers across the country. Ten U.S. soybean farmers will have a chance to learn about and evaluate specific investment areas of the soy checkoff - including international marketing, animal agriculture, industrial uses and soybean farmers' freedom to operate. Participants travel to St. Louis first - where they witness firsthand the operations of the checkoff and visit local sites related to domestic uses for soybeans. Then - participants travel internationally to experience how international customers use soy. USB will cover all related rooming, meal and travel expenses. To apply for the seventh annual See for Yourself program - visit www dot UnitedSoybean dot org slash SeeforYourself (www.UnitedSoybean.org/SeeforYourself) before April 4th.
