The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has reappointed one Nebraska farmer to serve on the United Soybean Board (USB). Greg Greving of Chapman will continue to serve on the board of 77 farmer directors across the country.
Greving, a seasoned soybean farmer with over 40 years of experience in soybean production, is set to commence another three-year term. The newly appointed and reappointed farmer-leaders will be sworn in for service during the USB December Meeting in St. Charles, Mo.
"I am honored to continue representing Nebraska on the United Soybean Board," said Greving. "With a background in international marketing for U.S. Soy, I am committed to leveraging this experience to enhance the profitability of U.S. soybean farmers. Serving soybean farmers, both in Nebraska and across the U.S., is a responsibility I take with great pride."
In addition to his wealth of experience in soybean production, Greving brings a history of dedicated service to the soybean checkoff, having previously served on the Nebraska Soybean Board from 2001 to 2013 and USB from 2013 to 2016, and 2020 to 2023.
“Each of these farmer-leaders will have a significant impact on the soy checkoff’s ability to build demand, enhance reputation and increase the resilience of our U.S. soybean crop,” said Meagan Kaiser, USB Chair and farmer from Missouri. “I’m proud of our farmer-led board that volunteers their time to look ahead and think big picture to ensure U.S. Soy remains a leader in forging partnerships to deliver sustainable solutions to every life, every day.”
Greving will continue to serve alongside Ed Lammers, Tony Johanson, and Victor Bohuslavsky as one of four Nebraska soybean farmers representing the state's interests on USB.
