Soybean growers from across Missouri are focusing on expanding their markets. Governor Mike Parson tells Brownfield he likes the idea of expanded cattle feeding in Missouri, creating a larger market for soybean meal.
Missouri Soybean Association President Brooks Hurst tells Brownfield trade issues have caused growers to focus on biodiesel and soybean meal.
Hurst was elected to a second term as association president during last week’s annual meeting. He describes the Missouri Soybean Association as a farmer-led organization, adding they’re working to protect farmers’ freedom to operate.
