The Texas Soybean Board (TSB) will discuss potential nominees for the United Soybean Board during its March 2014 conference call meeting. TSB will submit candidates’ names to the U.S. Department of Agriculture in April. The Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act authorized the national board, and the secretary of agriculture selects appointees from the soybean farmers that qualified state soybean boards nominate. The eventual appointee will serve a three-year term beginning in December 2014. Eligible soybean farmers should call 936-825-3300 for more details or to express their interest in the position by March 20th.
