Faces of MSGA: Morgan Schreurs

Playing a role in the world of agriculture looks different for everyone.

MSGA member Morgan Schreurs grew up on a farm in Tyler and attended the University of St. Thomas. During college, she found education and policy as her niche in agriculture.

“I started to hear all these misconceptions about agriculture, and it rubbed me the wrong way,” Schreurs said. “I realized there was a role for me to play in helping to educate my peers about where their food and fuel came from.”

She soon started looking for opportunities to support agriculture and found the Minnesota Soybean ambassador role in 2014.

“I really enjoyed it because it was an opportunity to talk to both producers and consumers around the state about soybeans on a range of topics,” Schreurs said.

MSGA member Morgan Schreurs serves on the Leadership Advisory Committee of the National Women’s Law Center.

The ambassador position was funded by the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR&PC) and included educating people on how MSGA advocacy benefits the state’s soybean industry.

“Being an ambassador gave me a front row seat to the role that Minnesota Soybean plays in agricultural advocacy and on the national scale with the American Soybean Association,” said Schreurs, whose father, Joel, is a longtime MSGA director.

Morgan Schreurs continues supporting MSGA through her membership while working on ag policy in Washington, D.C.

“Public policy is something that affects every single person, every day of their lives,” she said “I think it’s important to play your part in influencing policymakers so that your way of life is preserved and supported. I encourage all members of farm families to be members of MSGA.”
