See For Yourself 2014
See For Yourself to Japan and the Philippines
There’s no better way to learn about what is happening in the global soybean market than to see it for yourself. The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSRPC) is coordinating a See For Yourself trip to Japan and the Philippines to show Minnesota soybean farmers where their soybeans are going, to build relationships with foreign buyers and to help farmers better understand how their checkoff dollars are being invested. It also provides you with a chance to evaluate your investment.
Minnesota soybean farmers are encouraged to apply for this See For Yourself trip, scheduled for March 15-25, 2014. The mission will include overviews of the market in Southeast Asia, meetings with local soybean buyers, processors and suppliers, supermarkets and embassies. Participants will get an in-depth look at the soybean industry in Japan and the Philippines and participate in high level meetings with leaders from the region. This trip will offer a unique perspective and access to the industry.
Applications are open to any Minnesota soybean farmer. Cost of the trip for those selected is $2,000. Spouses can attend but must be paid on your own at an estimated $5,600. Application deadline is December 1. Selection will occur in early December. Click here to apply. Space is limited.
