The Faces of U.S. Soy Farming: A Family Affair

Having a consistent supply of high-quality, sustainably produced soybeans is vitally important to international soy buyers, and U.S. soy farmers are up to the challenge. Through the use of technology and conservation practices, soy producers are growing more food on less land, and they are improving their environment at the same time with these innovative methods.

In this video series produced by the Wisconsin Soybean Association, U.S. soy producers demonstrate their innovative management practices and reveal why they chose to help grow the world’s food supply.  

A Family Affair

Matt Wagenson of Bear Creek, Wisconsin got his start in farming as a young boy when his mom put him in the tractor with his dad. He quickly learned that farming is a collection of family and friends working together to plant, tend and harvest a crop. “There is nothing more rewarding than bringing in a crop with your dad and your brother,” said Wagenson.
