Gov. Terry Branstad designates August as Iowa Soybean Month
ANKENY – As the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) looks ahead to celebrating 50 years of service to soybean farmers in 2014, the association is honored to have Gov. Terry Branstad declare August as Iowa Soybean Month.
Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) was organized in 1964 by a group of Iowa farmers who came together with a common goal – to increase the profitability of soybean production in the state. At that time, Iowa grew 121 million bushels of soybeans. In 2012, that number grew to 414 million bushels of soybeans.
Mark Jackson serves as ISA president and farms near Rose Hill. He’s one of 21 volunteer farmers who are elected to serve on the ISA board of directors, representing nearly 11,000 members throughout the state. He said the soybean month proclamation recognizes the value of soybean production to Iowa and ISA’s innovative offering of programs and services.
