Every farmer counts.

Some of the most important decisions about the future of your farming operation are being made by people who have never set foot on a farm. 

Sobering thought huh?

Established by soybean farmers in 1962, the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) is a non-profit, farmer-controlled advocacy organization that works on behalf of soybean farmers to ensure their freedom to operate is protected, and their profitability will thrive.

MSGA monitors government policies to improve the profitability of soybean farmers throughout the state. Simply put, MSGA looks out for the best interest of soybean farmers in St. Paul and Washington, D.C.

With nearly 3,000 members, only 10 percent of Minnesota soybean farmers are MSGA members. Just think what more we could do with your membership dollars. 

What your MSGA membership dollars have been up to. 

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association has been playing a big role in St. Paul. In 2019:

  • MSGA dreamed big and its efforts paid off. The legislature approved $5 million in funding as part of the Soy Innovation Campus at the UMN-Crookston. Once fully operating, the crush and biodiesel facility aims to increase demand for soybeans in the region by an estimated 10-to-20 cents per bushel.
  • MSGA pushed for additional tax relief for farmers, successfully ending the legislative session with an increase from 40 to 70 percent in the school building bond ag credit.
  • MSGA has been a staunch advocate for raising awareness and increasing resources for rural mental health. The legislature approved $1.3 million for mental health counseling and more advocate throughout greater Minnesota.
