An abundance of beans and an uncertain trade outlook with China means extra efforts to increase opportunities for U.S. soybeans in other parts of the world.

Representatives from more than 50 countries expressed interest in U.S. soybeans at the U.S. Soy Global Trade Exchange and Specialty Grains Conference and Trade Show held recently in Chicago.

The event brought together U.S. sellers, global buyers and end-users to explore the advantages of and opportunities for U.S. soybeans.

Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs for the USDA Ted McKinney said his team is leaving “no stone unturned” when it comes to expanding global markets for U.S. soybeans. (Photo: Bethany Baratta/Iowa Soybean Association)
