Did you know…?
Some of the better known soybean products include:
- Soymeal for livestock feed
- meat alternatives
- soy sauce
- soy cheese, soy cream cheese, soy flour, infant formula, biodiesel fuel and the list goes on and on
Knowing how versatile soy is, we’re very excited that we’ll be growing soybeans on our North Dakota farm this year. This farm is managed by Fred Lukens. “Farmer Fred” and his wife Jane share their adventures in North Dakota agriculture on their wonderful blog, GriggsDakota.
This particular crop of beans is being raised for seed. So, these beans will be harvested and then treated and packaged to be sold for planting next year. Then, the crop from that seed will be used to make the items listed above and more!
Our AdFarm farms are a great opportunity for the company. It’s a strong component in our mission to keep AdFarmers well-versed and involved in agriculture! AdFarmers are given the opportunity to buy shares in the farm, which means each AdFarmer who buys is an agricultural investor! We, as a company, get to spend the growing season getting a close-up, field-level view of what’s happening in the industry we love. We are privy to decisions regarding the crop’s growth, development, and marketing. We get to see many of the products we market in action, too!
Now that North Dakota is thawing out and spring is spreading cross the Midwest, we’re looking forward to a new growing season.
And, as this is my first full growing season as a full-time AdFarmer, I’m excited to have my first experience as a farm share-holder!
Happy planting, friends, and thanks to Farmer Fred for leading us in this adventure!
