VISION
Advancing and protecting the interests of Missouri soybean producers.

All Missouri soybean farmers, as well as anyone with an interest in our state’s soybean industry are eligible for membership in the MSA. Memberships in the Missouri Soybean Association provide for advocacy and lobbying work on state, national and international issues. Under no circumstances may checkoff funds be used for lobbying purposes, making the Missouri Soybean Association and the national organization, the American Soybean Association, truly the voice of soybean farmers.

  • To increase grassroots participation by soybean farmers and industry partners
  • To inform existing and prospective members on public policies affecting the Missouri soybean producer
  • To grow the association’s visibility to policymakers and the public.

Farmer members of the Missouri Soybean Association elect directors to represent their respective districts on a three-year election cycle.

The Missouri Soybean Association’s board of directors meets throughout the year to set priorities, and hosts district meetings each winter. See who your board members are online at http://mosoy.org/missouri-soybean-association/meet-the-msa-board/, and meet your directors at an upcoming event or meeting.
