Who We Are
Logan Britton serves as the graduate fellow in economics and policy analysis for the U.S. Grains Council, a non-profit organization that promotes the global use of U.S. barley, corn, sorghum and related products including ethanol and distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS). In this capacity, Britton offers staff assistance in modeling long-term demand to help identify trade opportunities for U.S. feed grains and helps to analyze trade policies that impact U.S. feed grains and products.
Prior to the Council, Britton worked for the Kansas State University Department of Agricultural Economics as a graduate research and teaching assistant. In this capacity, he conducted research in consumer preferences and technology acceptance as well as evaluated student assignments and enrolled new undergraduate students. Britton has had previous internships with the Kansas Department of Agriculture and National FFA Organization.
Britton holds a master’s degree from Kansas State University in agricultural economics and a bachelor’s degree from K-State in agricultural economics and agricultural communications and journalism.
The Council is a private, non-profit partnership of agribusinesses and producers committed to building and expanding international markets for U.S. feed grains and ethanol. The organization has 10 international offices that oversee programs in more than 50 countries. Support for the Council comes from its producer and agribusiness members and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) through programs authorized in the U.S. farm bill.
