Missouri Soybeans Supports Sheriff Departments in the Show-Me State

The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council supports 13 counties by providing soy-based tires

(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo) – The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council (MSMC) is partnering with select sheriff departments in top soybean-producing counties to showcase the innovation of soybean farmers and recognize the importance of law enforcement partners across the state.

MSMC equipped more than a dozen Missouri counties with sets of Goodyear Eagle® Enforcer All Weather™ soy-based tires. These environmentally friendly tires meet high-performance standards and support Missouri’s No. 1 agricultural crop growers. This innovation stems from Goodyear’s soy-based line, where 60% of the tire’s petroleum content is replaced by renewable soybean oil.

“Developing new uses for soy while addressing challenges our partners face is key to realizing a bright future for Missouri’s top crop – soybeans,” said Aaron Porter, MSMC chair. “The soy-based tires are an exciting example of the innovation we’re proud to drive, through farmers’ investments in their checkoff, and we appreciate the partnership from law enforcement in putting this technology to work.”

The Goodyear Eagle® Enforcer All Weather™ soy-based tires have been available since 2019, promoted through a partnership with the United Soybean Board (USB), the soy checkoff and soybean farmers. The tires contain a soy-based rubber compound, equipped to handle adversity and maintain traction and control in all conditions.

The Enforcer™ offers performance features necessary for demanding operating conditions specific to law enforcement, combined with soy-based tires’ traction and tread-life benefits. In addition to the Goodyear Eagle® Enforcer All Weather™ line, Goodyear offers soy-based technology in their Assurance WeatherReady®, ComfortDrive® and high-performance Eagle Exhilarate® tires, as well as tires for transit buses and waste hauling trucks.

“We appreciate the opportunity to participate in this program,” said Larry Fish, Clinton County Sheriff. “This program is one more way in which we can support our local farmers.”

Fish shared that Clinton County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicles average 36,000 miles per year; tires are replaced after 25,000 miles.

The counties that received the soy-based tires include:

  • Clinton
  • Dekalb
  • Gentry
  • Perry
  • Ralls
  • Scotland
  • Clay
  • Cooper
  • Mississippi
  • Scott
  • New Madrid
  • Audrain
  • Lafayette
