Sorghum buyers from China visit Countryside Feed as part of U.S. Grains Council tour


Countryside Feed hosted a 13-member delegation from China Wednesday, June 22. The group was part of a U.S. Grains Council tour to promote sorghum in the United States. The Chinese guests were representing their nation’s sorghum buyers team, which is responsible for importing half of all sorghum shipped to China from the U.S. The delegation, plus two grain council representatives, toured the Hillsboro facility, and were served a meal catered by local chef Rob Scott. The U.S. Grains Council is a private, non-profit partnership of producers and agribusinessmen committed to building and expanding international markets for U.S. barley, corn, sorghum, and their co-products, including ethanol. USGC, with its headquarters in Washington, D.C., has 10 international offices that oversee programs in more than 50 countries. Standing in the back row are four Countryside Feed staff members who served as local hosts: (from left) Bill Fish, Kyle Cederberg, Tom Stoppel and Tim Diener.
