  • Kentucky Soybean Association keeps farmers busy through winter months

    Many people believe that farmers work hard from spring planting through fall harvest, then take the winter “off.” For the farmers who serve on the Kentucky Soybean Association (KSA) board, nothing could be further from the truth.

    “KSA keeps us pretty busy through the winter,” said President Jed Clark, who farms near Sedalia. “We conduct a lot of soybean business throughout the year, and March is a really busy month because we focus on interacting with our lawmakers at both the state and national levels.”

While there are many line items on the budget of a row crop operation, some things just cannot be cut without facing economic implications.
