USSEC Rolled Out Ground Work Feature

At the beginning of the growing season, USSEC rolled out Ground Work, a feature on the USSEC website, which provides periodic updates from soybean farmer leaders describing how they tackle the daily challenges that arise from growing a reliable soy supply.  The project aimed to give international customers a glimpse into the work that goes into growing a quality and reliable crop of U.S. soy.

Six U.S. farmer leaders are part of this ongoing series, representing various U.S. growing regions and climates.  Featured farmer leaders include:  Laura Foell of Schaller, Iowa, United Soybean Board (USB) Director; Jared Hagert of Emerado, North Dakota, USB Director; Bob Henry of Robinson, Kansas, American Soybean Association (ASA) Vice President; Keith Kemp of West Manchester, Ohio, USB Director; Ron Kindred of Atlanta, Illinois, USSEC Board of Directors, Illinois Soybean Association Marketing Committee Chair and ASA Director; and Randy Mann of Auburn, Kentucky, USSEC Chair and ASA Secretary.
Ground Work is updated weekly throughout the growing season and can be found on USSEC’s website or by following this link:
