Roy Smith

Roy Smith raises soybeans and corn and lives with his wife Sharon on a 1,000-acre farm near Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Roy is past president of the Nebraska Soybean Association, and past vice-president of the American Soybean Association. He's also represented the ASA on the agricultural advisory committee of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which regulates the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and other commodity exchanges.

Roy advocates the use of seasonal price charts and the development of "farmer-friendly" marketing strategies. Roy says that, above all, as a producer, "you need to set your farm and family goals and measure your success in marketing against those goals. Be sure that everyone in the family shares those goals. Don't let minor setbacks in markets distract you from the really important things in life."
