Area farmers were in Japan last week on a trade mission and to tour the Tsunami hit areas they supported with humanitarian relief. Nebraska Corn Board Chair Tim Scheer says the devastation is still evident.
Scheer says Nebraska’s corn and cattle producers were some of the first ag groups to donate money and food products to storm victims. He says it was definitely worth the effort with Japan a top customer of U.S. pork, beef and corn.
He says their mission helped put a face on the beef and pork that went into the Tsunami hit areas.
