Soybean marketing takes area man to China

HARTINGTON  — A Cedar County farmer traveled half way around the world to take in the inaugural Asian Subcontinent Buyer Conference in Nepal and the Food Security Food Safety Summit held in Beijing China the first part of November.

The Summit in China, which drew people from 20 countries, discussed steps that need to be taken to feed the world population.

The Asian Subcontinent Buyer Conference was part of an effort for buyers and sellers of soybeans, corn and grain to build trade relationships specific to the region and provided time for networking. The event was co-sponsored by the United States Soybean Export Council and the United States Grains Council.

Jim Miller, who lives on a farm north of Belden, is Chairman of the USSEC and the Director of the American Soybean Association.

Miller gave a presentation on biotechnology used on his farm and the sustainability during the Asian Subcontinent Buyer Conference and at the Summit in China.
