“As our technology advances, many important humane behaviors are lost to save time and cost.

This week mission in Taiwan and Korea to roll our U.S. Grains Council Corn Quality Crop report for 2013/2014 has been a success not because of the excellent results from our assessment on our crop but more due to our capacity to communicate with our customers directly in meetings exchanging information, experiences and answering different concerns, inquiries, etc. The fact that staff from Iowa Corn and actual producers where present in this roll out enhance and improved significant our relations with our partners in Asia, allowing a clear and transparent flow of information, not found in any news article or industry report, but because our farmers were able to speak directly on their experiences and expectations on our US production, permitting our customers have first had information from the source.
