Grain Export Mission

Two groups of farmers recently experienced a unique opportunity to see both a U.S. grain customer country and competitor market country during the U.S. Grains Council’s (USGC) Grain Export Mission (GEM), held Nov. 30 to Dec. 13.

One group composed of U.S. barley and sorghum producers traveled to Mexico and Argentina, where they met with contacts looking to expand their businesses in part by using U.S. grains.
