The President of the American Soybean Association is Bob Metz, from South Dakota. Bob is very happy with the way things are going with the whole renewable fuels initiative in the U. S. and especially with biodiesel. I don’t think you’ll find a bigger supporter out there.
Besides the impact biodiesel development has on the soybean business Bob also thinks all growers should become members of ASA so that their voice will be heard as policy decisions are made here as part of the grassroots effort that takes place at Commodity Classic, the combined annual meeting of the National Corn Growers Association and ASA.
You can listen to my interview with Bob here: Metz Interview (3:30 MP3 File)
AgWired coverage of Commodity Classic is being made posssible by our good friends at New Holland.
