Geoff Ruth has leadership in his blood. The Nebraska Soybean Association president is the son of Bart Ruth, a former president of the American Soybean Association. The younger Ruth had just emerged from a Commodity Classic caucus meeting and would soon be due at another. He was concerned that the large trade show and various other trappings of the large convention, “the fun part of the Commodity Classic,” might get only a fleeting glimpse before it was time to head back to his family’s farm. And although he appears rather young to be leading his state’s soybean association, he’s fully immersed in the formation of American Soybean Association policy. For instance, Geoff makes it clear that he’s all for the construction of energy transportation pipelines across the country as long as they’re sustainable environmentally.
