Checkoff Stewards

The Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board is the elected board of soybean farmers who oversee the investment of soybean checkoff dollars into new uses, new and existing markets, research, promotion and education to increase farmer profitability.

WSMB History

WSMB was first established in 1983 as part of the Wisconsin soybean checkoff, approximately 10 years before the introduction of the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act and Order. While the checkoff program has changed, the mission has remained the same: to put farmers in a positive light while increasing soybean profitability.
