Three vessels of U.S. corn and one vessel of U.S. distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) arrived in Vietnam in late May and early June. On June 2, U.S. Grains Council (USGC) representatives there accompanied local U.S. Department of Agriculture-Foreign Agricultural Service (USDA-FAS) and the U.S. Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City to the Phu My Port to evaluate the quality of a corn shipment. Witnessing bulk vessels like this one unload accentuates the growing feed demand from Vietnam’s poultry, swine and aquaculture sectors and highlights the Council’s work with them.
