Arkansas Soybean Association announces seminar

The Arkansas Soybean Association has set Jan. 28 as the date of their 50th annual Business Session and Seminar. The informative seminar and business session will be held at the Grand Prairie Center (2709 U.S. 165) in Stuttgart, Ark. Registration will begin at 8:15 a.m., program at 9 a.m. and will conclude in mid-afternoon. Lunch will be provided by the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board.

The program will include a legislative update from the American Soybean Association, a report from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board, a report on biodiesel, and an expanded panel discussion on the Race for 100 Soybean Yield Contest and Grow for the Green Soybean Yield Challenge. Speakers scheduled at this time are Danny Murphy, Chairman, American Soybean Association; Shannon Davis, Chairman, Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board; and Robert Stobaugh, National Biodiesel Board/United Soybean Board Director. A tentative agenda is available online at www.arkansassoybean.com.

The Soybean Association will hold its 50th annual Business Session of membership. During this meeting, the winners of the 2013 Grow for the Green Yield Challenge will be recognized along with the Race for 100 Bushels/Acre Winners: Nelson Crow, Matt and Sherrie Miles, and Eddie Tackett. The 2014 DuPont Young Leader, Adam Cloninger from England, will also be recognized. There will be an expanded panel discussion with the yield contest winners.

Ag business reps will be present to answer your questions. We will also be holding a live auction to raise additional funds for lobbying and special projects. Auction items, provided by members of the soybean industry, include soybean seed, crop protection chemicals, fish cookers, custom applications, pearls, and many other similar items.

Arkansas President Ted Glaub said recently, “This is a busy time of year for all producers and we have designed our meeting to meet the needs of our membership. We are providing information we feel is important to producers in a day.”

All are invited to attend and bring a friend. For more information, contact the office at 501-666-1418 or swsoy@aristotle.net.
