ST. LOUIS (January 30, 2014) – Gregory Greving, a soybean farmer from Chapman, Neb., was recently sworn in as a director on the United Soybean Board (USB) during the organization’s annual meeting.
Appointed by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Greving will represent his fellow soybean farmers by investing soy checkoff funds in marketing, promotion and research projects that aim to increase the profitability of all U.S. soybean farmers.
He raises soybeans, wheat and seed corn on his farm and has served on the Nebraska Soybean Board for 12 years.
Greving said he concentrated on international marketing during his time on the Nebraska Soybean Board and hopes to continue that as a USB director. He’ll serve on the Meal Action Team, so he’ll be involved in promoting U.S. soybean meal in foreign markets.
“I’m excited to help direct new and ongoing projects to promote U.S. soy products here at home and abroad,” says Greving.
USB invests in projects to increase the value of U.S. soybean meal and oil, ensure U.S. farmers and their customers maintain the freedom and infrastructure to operate, and meet the needs of U.S. soy’s customers.
“The United Soybean Board welcomes both the new and returning directors,” says USB Chairman Jim Call, a soybean farmer from Madison, Minn. “We know that they will make excellent additions to the board and are committed to overseeing the projects to maximize the profit potential of all U.S. soybean farmers.”
