The Council would like to extend its deepest condolences to the Schaffer family. Shannon Schaffer, former USGC director of membership, passed on Saturday, Sept. 17. Shannon worked for the Council from 2007-2010 and his work and contributions will be remembered well at the Council. Council activity calendar:
• September 25- October 2: The Council has invited five representatives from ONAB, one of the largest grain importers in Algeria to visit the United States for exposure to U.S. corn producers and suppliers. The Algerian Buying Team will meet with U.S. producers, suppliers and exporters of corn, visit river and export terminals, tour the Chicago Board of Trade, and participate in a short course at Kansas State University’s International Grains Program.
• September 26-October 9: The Council will lead a Chinese Dairy Study Team in a tour of U.S. dairy farms. The team will receive technical training in the operation and management of U.S. dairy production to improve China’s production capacity. The nutritional information shared with these partner farms is also expected to lead to an increase U.S. feed grain consumption. For more information, contact Anne Pelkey,
• September 29-October 8: The Council will escort a Korean Feed Grain Import Buyers Team through the United States to visit USDA field offices and trade associations as well as grain elevators and transportation facilities in the region.
