Oilseed Council

            The last few weeks I’ve written about the ND Soybean Council and the ND Barley Council. This week I’ll write about the ND Oilseed Council.


            The ND Oilseed Council is similar to other commodity councils in that it is funded through checkoffs on the sale of the commodities tit represents. However, it gets a bit complicated after that. The Oilseed Council represents sunflowers, canola, safflower, flax, and other oilseeds. Sunflower and canola producers elect county representatives, who then elect representatives to the state board. Flax, crambe, and safflower representatives are appointed by the governor.
