AFBF Convention: Meet the New United Soybean Board Vice Chairman

The soy checkoff strives to enhance the profit potential of U.S. soybean farmers. Checkoff farmer-leaders, including newly elected United Soybean Board (USB) Vice Chairman Bob Haselwood, a soybean farmer from Kansas, will have one-on-one discussions with Farm Bureau leadership at the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Convention in San Antonio.

Stop by USB’s booth, #616, to discuss the soy checkoff’s priorities for the coming year. Some topics up for discussion include:
  • High oleic soybeans and the checkoff’s collaborations to expand their availability. The oil from high oleic soybeans meets food- industry needs for functionality while avoiding trans fats.
  • Take Action, a checkoff-led effort encouraging farmers to fight back against herbicide-resistant weeds by diversifying their weed-management plans.
  • Soybean Quality Matters, an informational campaign to show farmers that improving U.S. soy quality increases customer demand and can lead to higher prices farmers receive.
