Corn/Soybean Farmers Appreciate Importance of Red-Meat Exports

USMEF Executive Committee members Jay Lynch of the Iowa Corn Growers Association (above left) and Bruce Schmoll of the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association, along with USMEF Assistant Vice President, Industry Relations John Hinners, were in attendance at this week’s Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Fla. Commodity Classic

“The Commodity Classic is an outstanding opportunity for USMEF and our Executive Committee members to meet face-to-face with our members and supporters in the corn and soybean industries and discuss the importance of the future of red meat exports,” said Hinners. “A USMEF presence is more important than ever as corn and soybean producers have a growing appreciation of the importance of U.S. beef and pork exports to their bottom line.”

Attendance numbers are not yet available for this year’s show, but last year the Commodity Classic attracted a record turnout of 6,014, about 25 percent better than 2011.
