Illinois soybean producers have the opportunity to elect district representatives to the joint board of the Illinois Soybean Association and Illinois Soybean Checkoff.
Producers can visit their county extension office on July 3 to cast their ballot.
The Illinois Soybean Association provides advocacy and education, while the Illinois Soybean Checkoff funds research and market development. The money comes from a small percentage of the delivered price deducted for the checkoff when farmers sell their soybeans.
