Nebraska Soybean Board to attend Husker Harvest Days

The Nebraska Soybean Board (NSB) and its members will be represented in attendance at the 2019 Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska on September 10-12, 2019.

In attending, the NSB will highlight the $1.5 billion in economic impact of soybeans in Nebraska and the role it plays in marketing the state’s second-largest row crop domestically and internationally. Since its inception, the soy checkoff has existed for one reason: to create profit opportunities for you, America’s soybean farmers. We acknowledge these as “cropportunities.” Soy is in your tires, in your seat, and in your fuel tank as you go from point A to B. It feed the chickens, pigs and cows at the center of your plate. It’s the oil we bake with, fry with and drizzle on our salad.  Finding new uses for soy is what has grown the U.S. soybean industry from $11 billion to $41 billion in the last 25 years.

Be sure to check out the “cropportunities” adding value to your soy. The NSB looks forward to joining you at the Ag Commodities building representing the collective theme of Ag Strong: Growing Value.
