Minnesota Soybean Growers Association’s ‘Spill the Beans’ webinar returning in 2022

MANKATO – The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association is excited to announce the return of the “Spill the Beans” webinar series in 2022. Spill the Beans debuted in winter 2021, and this year will once again feature a roster of speakers covering an array of agriculture-related topics, from policy discussions to production practices.

“Even though we’ve returned to in-person events, we received lots of positive feedback from growers last year and have decided to continue to ‘Spill the Beans’ this winter,” MSGA President Mike Skaug said. “We look forward to another entertaining and informative series that will help prepare our members for the year ahead.”

Spill the Beans airs Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 9 a.m. on Zoom and will be broadcasted on MSGA’s Facebook page. This webinar will run each Tuesday through March 9.

Upcoming topics include:

Feb. 2: MSGA lobbyists Cory Bennett and A.J. Duerr will discuss MGSA’s legislative priorities during the 2022 Legislative Session, which begins Jan. 30. Cory and A.J will also give an overview of the statewide election in November.
