Inaugural Soy Policy Leaders Fellowship Begins
Aspiring leaders in the soybean industry from Missouri and Iowa are gathering over the next two days to learn more about standing up for their fellow farmers. The inaugural Policy Leaders fellowship is co-sponsored by Missouri Soybeans. External Relations Liaison Baylee Siegel highlights some of their goals for the project.
Siegel says she’s hopeful the fellowship will continue for many years.
The Policy Leaders Fellowship includes seven growers from Missouri and nine from Iowa. They’ll hear from several speakers this week, including two former state ag department leaders who recently led USDA offices, Richard Fordyce of Missouri and Bill Northey of Iowa.
