Last week, a small delegation of South Korean corn buyers visited Illinois farms and met with exporting companies to discuss U.S. corn quality, old crop supplies and expectations for the 2021/2022 new crop. The program provided the opportunity for them to build a closer relationship with the U.S. feed grain industry and better understand the U.S. grain and co-products export system. The team made a stop at Consolidated Grain and Barge Company’s barge loading facility on the Illinois River in Utica, IL, pictured here.
