ISA ATTENDS INTERNATIONAL PRODUCTION AND PROCESSING EXPO
The ISA Market Development staff attended the International Production & Processing Expo in Atlanta, Georgia last week. This was a great opportunity to connect with leading staff in the poultry, meat, livestock, and commodity spaces and explore how soy can make an impact.
Illinois farmer and current ASA President, Daryl Cates, visited Washington, D.C. last week to discuss soy policy along with Christy Seyfert, ASA’s Executive Director of Government Affairs. The two met with the Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman and the House Agriculture Committee Chairman to discuss ASA priorities for the 2023 Farm Bill and the Renewable Fuel Standard.
ISA and its partners held the first Project Broadband Breakthrough webinar enabling participants to learn more about the program and their opportunities for involvement, develop their plan, and submit a proposal to provide reliable and affordable broadband access to every citizen in their respective counties.
The Illinois Nutrient Research and Education Council (NREC) needs your input as they develop their research priorities for the 2024 Research RFP. Your feedback helps to drive conversation and increase the number of voices that are heard throughout the process.
