US Grains Council (USGC) Manager of Global Trade Alvaro Cordero recently returned from a market servicing mission to China and shared with the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) some of his impressions of China’s demand for US sorghum and distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS). Mr Cordero also discussed what the Council is doing to keep grain flowing to that important market.


“According to USDA reports, we are expecting China to buy more than 11 million metric tons (433 million bushels) of US sorghum this year,” he said.

“The Council has been behind China’s growing interest in sorghum. In 2011, in conjunction with the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, we did an assessment, and then in 2012 we started ramping up USGC sorghum programs in the country. We found ways that made sense for China to be buying sorghum.”

The Council has been involved in China for more than 30 years and has helped expand its demand for all coarse grains to current levels. Through missions like this one, the Council continues to provide customer servicing to livestock producers in China who are eager to learn more about US grain, especially sorghum, and how to utilise it.
