WASHINGTON (WTVA) - Two local farmers have been appointed to serve on a federal board representing soybean producers.

Annie Dee of Aliceville, Alabama, and Philip Good of Macon were named Wednesday by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to the United Soybean Board.

That board oversees investments of money accumulated through the half-percent assessment on soybean sales by farmers to get the most profits.

Dee and Good will each serve a three-year term.
