Shurson '81 takes IAS message to Asia

Representatives from the U.S. Grains Council’s (USGC’s) office in Southeast Asia participated in two regional conferences in April to provide context, industry insights and actionable market intelligence to customers of U.S. agricultural commodities. Among those representatives was Dr. Jerry Shurson '81 (B.S. Animal Science), professor in the Department of Animal Science. As trade in food and feed ingredients continues to increase to meet rising demand, risks and opportunities will also invariably increase, making this one-to-one outreach and the information USGC can provide even more valuable.

The Council showcased U.S. coarse grains and value-added products through a tradeshow booth as well as a one-hour seminar. The USGC-organized seminar attracted more than 60 participants and featured Dr. Jerry Shurson speaking on distiller’s dried grains.

This event allows USGC to promote U.S. grains and value-added products to meet the increasing demand for Southeast Asia’s ever-growing livestock sector. Find more information about the USGC or this conference here.
