Lincoln County Corn and Soybean Growers and their checkoffs are hosting a “Farmers Share” breakfast from 7-10 a.m. Saturday at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. “We want to raise awareness of the actual monetary amount farmers receive,” said Tim Jerzak, president of the Lincoln County Corn and Soybean Growers Association. “It is important for us to share our story and connect consumers with producers.” The breakfast will include pancakes, sausage, eggs and a drink, all for 35 cents to replicate the amount a farmer actually receives. This event is open to all ages and is done in part with the Lincoln County Fair and the Lincoln County 4-H. “We welcome everyone to come out to the county fair and support our area farmers and county 4-H program,” Jerzak said. “We look forward to sharing our message while supporting our youth program through the Lincoln County 4-H.” The Lincoln County Corn & Soybean Growers Association is affiliated with the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council, which oversees the investment of soybean checkoff dollars on behalf of the nearly 28,000 farmers in Minnesota. The Council is governed by the rules of a federally mandated checkoff program that requires all soybean producers pay a fee on the soybeans they sell. Checkoff dollars are used to promote, educate and develop market opportunities for soybeans.
