United Soybean Board’s See For Yourself Tour Now Open for Applications

Many soybeans have been delivered to the elevator – but where will they go next? The soy checkoff invites farmers to find the answer to this question and learn about the impact that U.S. soy’s biggest customers make on farmers’ bottom lines during this year’s See for Yourself program.

From now until April 4th – U.S. soybean farmers ages 18 and older can apply for the See for Yourself program. Kansas soybean farmer Lavell Winsor – one of last year’s participants – says the program also allows farmers to evaluate checkoff programs…

“It’s a great opportunity for people to really see how their checkoff dollars are used. Its much deeper exposure than I ever expected it to be.”

During the See for Yourself program – participants are introduced to their customers and see the results of their checkoff investments up close…

“Before I went on the See for Yourself Program I knew that the checkoff dollars were important, but I couldn’t put a finger on exactly why. Now I have a much greater understanding of how checkoff dollars are used, where the investments are – both at home and abroad. Its money well spent by US Farmers.”

This year’s See for Yourself program will take place July 30th through August 7th. Ten soybean farmers from across the country will be chosen to participate. To apply – visit United Soybean dot org slash See for Yourself (www.unitedsoybean.org/seeforyourself).
