Farmers Choosing Farmer Leaders
One of the great things about the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR&PC) is that it is farmer led. And because the Council is made up of elected farmers, soybean producers have a voice in who directs their checkoff dollars.
How? Any person who owns or operates a soybean producing enterprise and shares in the profits and risk during the current or preceding marketing year is eligible to vote. Each producer unit is entitled to one vote. A voter must meet Minnesota’s general election voting age requirements. For additional guidelines, see below.
Elections for directors in districts 1, 2 & 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9 will held in March of 2018. Ballots will be mailed to producers March 20, 2018, and producers have until April 5, 2018 to cast their ballots. Request a ballot below.
