Exports are a growing opportunity.
Making export growth a priority extends to the locks and dams priority (we need adequate infrastructure to move grain) and the ethanol priority (ethanol exports is a growing market). "Exports" is the place where many of our programs overlap.
IL Corn works with several important partners to accomplish our international export goals, including:
- US Grains Council
- National Corn Growers Association
- US Meat Export Federation
- USA Poultry and Egg Export Council
