Soybean farmers can apply for one of the 10 spots in this year’s soy checkoff See for Yourself program and get an up-close look at the work of their checkoff investment. Farmers who participate will meet domestic and international end users, see where soybeans go beyond the elevator and evaluate checkoff programs.
From the use of U.S. soy by domestic companies to the export of U.S. soy to end users around the world, See for Yourself shows program participants the checkoff’s role in maximizing U.S. soybean farmer profitability.
Kansas soybean farmer Lavell Winsor, a past See for Yourself participant, explains what it was like to see her checkoff dollars in action.
“Oh, I think it’s a great opportunity for people to really see how their checkoff dollars are used. The exposure to different things, it’s just hard to even put into words because it’s much deeper exposure than I ever expected it to be.”
The program is tentatively scheduled for August fourth through the twelfth. All U.S. soybean farmers over the age of 18 can apply through April first by visiting www.unitedsoybean.org/seeforyourself.
