01 Jun ND Soybean Council Unveils New Logo
“When the North Dakota soybean checkoff was first instituted in 1985, soybeans were a minor crop in North Dakota,” says Stephanie Sinner, NDSC executive director. “Thirty-eight years after the checkoff was created, North Dakota has become one of the nation’s leaders in soybean production.”
“Over the years, soybean farmers have grown, evolved, and adapted to North Dakota’s broadening soybean industry,” says NDSC Chairman Chris Brossart of Wolford. “The construction of two soybean crushing plants in North Dakota is going to open even more avenues for soybean farmers to provide food, feed, and fuel to the world. These changes in our industry have inspired us to update our logo to reflect the future of the North Dakota’s soybean industry.”
The new logo is clean, sleek, and coherent. The logo’s colors reflect soybean farmers’ continued commitment to the longevity of land conservation, preservation of clean water, air, and other natural resources, which are vital to the viability of U.S. soybean production.
“From field to yield and beyond, the future of soybeans is strong,” says Brossart. “NDSC is committed to innovating to expand partnerships, markets, and opportunities for the success of North Dakota soybean growers.”
North Dakota soybean farmers across the state are represented on the North Dakota Soybean Council Board, which oversees a promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars.
