A U.S. Grains Council (USGC) trade team of Taiwanese swine producers, government officials, researchers and association representatives visited Iowa and Minnesota from June 6 to the 17 to familiarize themselves with both modern U.S. swine production practices and the U.S. grains industry. As part of the mission, they toured the diversified production farm of Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) Director Kelly Niewenhuis from O’Brien County. ICPB invests Iowa corn checkoff dollars and provides in-kind support to UCGC activities which work to build and expand demand for corn in all forms.
