Iowa Soybean Association President Brian Kemp who farms near Sibley in the Northwest part of the state just returned this weekend from a trade Mission to Thailand. The visit was headed up by Iowa Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds and is a follow up to an earlier visit made by Reynolds last year. Kemp says on the trip he was able to meet up with one of his Thai customers who visited his farm last year.

Kemp says their customers in Thailand like the quality of U.S. soybeans and soybean meal and they were able to show them the superior value of the American product.

Kemp says the Thai’s are anxious to come to the United States and see first hand how soybeans are grown and processed.

He says while on this month’s trade trip his group was able to tour a poultry processing plant as well as visit Thailand’s largest feed mill and meal processing plant.
