Who We Are
Wisconsin Soybean Association (WSA)
Founded in 1972, the Wisconsin Soybean Association (WSA) is a grassroots, farmer-led, membership organization. Since the soybean checkoff is prohibited by law from lobbying, WSA works to ensure that sound policies are in place to enhance the future of soybean farming. We work on behalf of our 1,200 members to positively impact regulatory and legislative issues on a local, state and national level.
The WSA is a progressive organization devoted to bringing together all persons interested in the production, marketing, distribution, and utilization of soybeans and soybean products.
- To increase grassroots participation thereby increasing total association membership.
- To communicate and inform our existing and prospective members on public policies regarding the Wisconsin soybean producer.
- To promote the association's visibility and increase its public relations thereby improving its image among policymakers and the general public.
