Last month, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) led an assessment mission of feed technology, animal nutrition and trading industry professionals to develop a roadmap for program engagement in Vietnam and Thailand.

The group included Gerald Shurson, Department of Animal Science, University of Minnesota; Kim Koch, Northern Crops Institute; and Randy Ives, The Gavilon Group, LLC. The Council was represented by Kurt Shultz, USGC director of global strategies, and joined by Kevin Roepke, USGC regional director of South and Southeast Asia, in Thailand. 

As two of the most important and rapidly developing livestock industries in Southeast Asia, the focus of the mission was aquaculture and dairy in Vietnam and poultry and aquaculture in Thailand. To date these industries have stimulated billions of dollars in foreign investments.
