EVENT:

U.S. SOY MARKET OUTLOOK CONFERENCES – NORTH ASIA MARKET

Three U.S. soybean farmers are in Shanghai, China, after a series of USSEC-hosted U.S. Soy Market Outlook Conferences.  The Thursday conference call opportunity will take place upon the end of the Shanghai conference, which is the last of the series of three, with the other two having taken place in Taiwan and Japan.

 

The U.S. soybean farmers in attendance each introduced current year U.S. soybean production information, their future planning outlook, and a quality survey report on the 2013 crop.  They also spoke with attendees about the sustainability of U.S. soybean production.  This series of conferences presented customers in North Asia a unique opportunity to obtain the most recent new crop situation reports and other U.S. Soy information  

 

The conference included site tours to local swine farms, ports, and crushing plants.

 

USSEC expects the outlook conferences to help participants gain access to critical information, network with industry principals and explore real business opportunities.
