American Soybean Association Commemorates 100th Anniversary at Camden Event on August 4th

On Aug. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., The American Soybean Association (ASA), with support from the Indiana Soybean Alliance, will host a 100th anniversary celebration and historical marker dedication in Camden.

ASA was formed when brothers Taylor, Noah and Finis Fouts hosted the first Corn Belt Soybean Field Day at their Soyland Farms operation in Camden, Ind. on Sept. 3, 1920.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. with self-guided tours, including heirloom soybean plots and historic Fouts family machinery. The historical marker ceremony will begin at 11 a.m., featuring Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb. After lunch, an anniversary program at noon will be led by farm broadcaster Max Armstrong.

The event is free of charge; however, attendance is capped at 180, so those interested must register. For those who cannot make it in person, the event will also be livestreamed.
