October 17-31: The Council will organize a series of U.S. Corn education/promotion seminars and one-on-one trade and technical servicing meetings in Indonesia and Malaysia. Program participants include national feed companies, trading groups and livestock integrator companies. This event is intended to assist buyers of U.S. corn with proper contracting and grain procurement. The U.S. Grains Council does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation or marital/family status. Persons with disabilities, who require alternative means for communication of program information should contact the U.S. Grains Council.
The Southeast Asia U.S. Agricultural Cooperators Conference in Indonesia attracted “the elite of the elite buyers of Southeast Asia,” according to Frank Kralicek of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council. Kralicek, who delivered the U.S. and world corn supply and demand presentation, reported a record turnout of more than 180 people representing major feed milling, integrated feed-meat-food producing and trading companies from the region. He praised Adel Yusupov, USGC regional director, for the quality of the program and the turnout. “I got a lot of questions even before speaking,” Kralicek reported. “Not just about quality and supply, but even about farm programs, the markets, and whether we have the transportation facilities to supply enough corn to Southeast Asia. They asked questions the whole time I was there.” Trades negotiated at the conference increased from $368,939,351 worth of commodities in 2010 to $461,901,280. Wheat sales dropped from 2010 and soybean sales declined slightly, but corn, distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) and soybean meal sales registered major gains.
“This conference continues to receive tremendous support from the industry. We hope with each passing year to continue providing this platform to help the region’s agricultural industry progress,” Yusupov concluded.
