American Soybean Association President Bill Gordon has been attending as many state soybean association annual meetings as possible ahead of Commodity Classic. This past week, the Worthington, Minnesota farmer was in his home state for MN Ag Expo. “It’s great to come back home and see fellow farmers. These are the grassroots delegate sessions and resolutions we take all the way to Washington D.C.” Trade deals are a bright spot for the soybean industry. “When you look at the U.S. and China phase one deal, the biotech part hasn’t been talked about much and it is a positive,” said Gordon. “We need long-term trading with China. We don’t want them to buy a bunch of bushels and quit again. We need to get the relationship and demand built back up.”
