The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association held their annual meeting and delegate session ahead of the MN Ag Expo. MSGA President Jamie Beyer highlighted a few 2019 legislative wins for Minnesota’s farmers. “Finding ways to help with rural mental health and the Soy Innovation Campus are two big wins. We are always looking at water quality and pesticide regulations, too.” Minnesota First District Congressman Jim Hagedorn addressed the soybean meeting. “Agriculture has big wins in the trade front. We are pleased Congress passed the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. That’s really going to help our farmers. Half of our trade goes to Mexico and Canada,” said Hagedorn. “There are also challenges in agriculture like the Renewable Fuel Standard. We need the EPA to administer the RFS the way Congress intended.”
