The Secretary Treasurer of the U.S. Grains Council wants the
world to know the U.S. remains open for business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chad Willis, who farms near Willmar in west-central Minnesota, says it’s pretty much business as usual at U.S. ports.
“We can get the product out, and we have a lot of good quality products to ship to these countries. Hopefully we can get some ethanol moving into China to help out the struggling ethanol industry.”
Besides China, he tells Brownfield USGC has boots on the ground in emerging markets like Africa.
“A couple of years ago I was over to Africa and saw first-hand what U.S. Grains has been doing. And it’s kind of a marathon, not a sprint when you’re dealing with corn and different commodities to get them geared up to use our products.”
USGC president Ryan LeGrand says the Grains Council is continuing operations in this new world everyone is living in to stay on top of available market information in order to update stakeholders on the status of global grain flows and port operations.
