"Promoting the use of soy biodiesel and soybean meal to Nebraska farmers and International customers will be the main focus for the Nebraska Soybean Board this fiscal year. A variety of events are planned to promote soybeans and soy products toconsumers in local and international markets. The goal is to make sure all soybeans are consumed that farmers want to grow," said NSB Executive Director Victor Bohuslavsky.
The nine-member Nebraska Soybean Board collects and disburses the Nebraska share of funds generated by the one-half of 1 percent times the net sales price per bushel of soybeans sold. Nebraska soybean checkoff funds are invested in domestic and foreign markets and research, including new uses for soybeans and soybean products.
