USB Director Presents at Poultry Nutrition Seminar in Japan

Scott Singlestad, USB Director, traveled to Japan in February for a Poultry Nutrition Seminar and Roundtable.  The goal of this trip was to give a presentation on the soybean production forecast for the 2013 crop from the U.S. farmer’s perspective and to give a high-level overview of the research that the Minnesota QSSB is funding.

Mr. Singlestad presented “The Current and Future Corn & Soy Production Outlook in the USA” at the seminar.  He was also a panelist at the roundtable discussion, “What Do We Need to Consider Regarding Protein Source of Animal Feed for More Profitable Industry?”  In addition to the seminar and roundtable, USSEC met with several broiler producers to discuss poultry feed.
