Kentucky Soybean farmer-leaders always look forward to the National Farm Machinery Show, which is held in Louisville at the Kentucky Exposition Center each February. In addition to putting in a few miles walking around and looking at all the new equipment and other farm-related offerings, many of the organization’s board members volunteer their time to staff the Kentucky Soybean exhibit.

This year was no different. The focus of our exhibit was on the numerous uses for soy and soy components, and there were, well… “SOY” many things to see. From the traditional food items that you find in your pantry to some newer innovations, such as Impact Gel Saddle pads, SYNLawn Artificial Grass, Biobased Motor Oil, DEWALT Bar and Chain Oil, GearHead fifth wheel grease pads, and both tires and Skechers shoes made with Goodyear rubber tread containing soybean oil instead of petroleum, show attendees had a lot to talk about!
