Some of the most important decisions about the future of your farming operation are being made by people who have never set foot on a farm...
Established by soybean farmers in 1962, the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) is a non-profit, farmer-controlled membership organization aimed at monitoring government policies, supporting research activities and market development activities to improve the profitability of soybean farmers throughout the state.
Your membership in the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) ensures that today’s policymakers understand what its like to be a soybean producer in Minnesota. While you’re working hard on your farm, MSGA is working at the state and national levels to develop and promote policies and programs that will positively impact Minnesota soybean farmers.
