Interested in Learning more about the Checkoff? Come See for Yourself this Year!

It’s no secret that our international customers play a big role in determining the price of our soybeans. In fact, studies suggest that one out of every four rows of soybeans in Nebraska will be shipped to China or the Pacific Rim. Have you ever wondered how they get there?

The Nebraska Soybean Board recently funded the eleventh year of its “See for Yourself” program. The See for Yourself program is designed to give Nebraska soybean farmers the opportunity to learn more about their checkoff. Farmers selected to take part in the program will attend checkoff-sponsored activities in an attempt to gain a better understanding of how their checkoff dollars are being invested to build demand and increase profitability.

See for Yourself is designed to include opportunities to attend state, national and international activities. The in-state program gives farmers the chance to attend functions in Nebraska that are vital to the continued success of the soybean industry. The national program includes attending meetings sponsored by the United Soybean Board, United States Meat Export Federation, National Biodiesel Board, United States Soybean Export Council, Untied States Poultry and Egg Export Council, as well as many other important national meetings and activities. The international program is designed to show soybean farmers first-hand what the checkoff is doing to build global demand.

Join the program!

This year’s international tour will take a group of soybean farmers to the Pacific Northwest to learn about the logistics of meeting our customers’ needs. For more information, or to apply for this year’s trip, please visithttp://www.nebraskasoybeans.org/producer-resources/see-for-yourself.
