FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The head of the North Dakota Soybean Council is retiring at the end of the year.
Deborah Johnson has been executive director since 1991. Council Chairman Monte Peterson says North Dakota soybean farmers are fortunate to have had someone so dedicated to promoting the industry.
The council, with its board of directors made up of farmers, oversees a promotion, research and marketing program funded by checkoff dollars paid by farmers.
Johnson says she plans to spend more time with family, travel and pursue a private business venture.
