Nebraska Soybean Association executive director Lori Luebbe talks about the Nebraska Corn & Soy Ambassador Program, a co-sponsored partnership that reaches out to agriculture majors from the University of Nebraska to show them different aspects of the soy and corn checkoff organizations and teach them about career opportunities.

Students discuss how they are leveraging what they are learning through the program and the importance of building global relationships, including their experience at the 2017 U.S. Soy Global Trade Exchange.

The U.S. Soy Global Trade Exchange is the U.S. Soybean Export Council’s flagship event, bringing together international trade teams and U.S. Soy industry representatives. The 2017 event, held in Omaha, Nebraska, welcomed more than 250 qualified buyers from around the world.
