Learn & see why trade is important to our state

On June 14 at the Bell County Expo Center, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) is bringing its trade school to Texas. With the help of sponsors such as Texas Corn Producers (TCP), National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and other commodity groups, the goal is to offer farmers and community members a better understanding of the importance of trade to agriculture & Texas commodities.

The agenda consists of many speakers covering topics such as the benefits of trade for farmers, hot topics affecting trade in Texas, and developing messages about trade. There will also be a panel of farmers for the audience to ask questions.

David Gibson, TCP’s executive director, says he believes this event is going to be beneficial to farmers, their operations and communities since trade is a major part of the state’s agricultural industry.

“The trade school workshop offers attendees insight about the current trade market and how it works,” Gibson said. “Due to Texas being such a high-producing state and a large exporter, the Texas trade school is expected to be beneficial to farmers and others across the state.”

The trade school will be held at the Bell County Expo, 301 West Loop 121, and will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
