At the recent Soybean Symposium on quality and trade, host by the University of Minnesota, a variety of speakers talked about the export challenges with soybeans – from stricter foreign materials issues and declining protein composition, to amino acid profiles and nutritional bundling/component pricing that could lead to a new soybean value chain based on soybean meal component profiles. Check out this gallery to learn how these issues could impact the future soybean market.
Also, check out the two previous galleries we wrote about:
- Ed Usset, Grain Marketing Economist for the Center for Farm Financial Management at the University of Minnesota, offered an excellent current and long-term outlook at soybean supply and demand.
- Jim Sutter, CEO of U.S. Soybean Export Council, provided a look at international trade agreements, market access issues and opportunities to grow U.S soybean demand.
