I think with rapid growth in the Chinese feed industry, sorghum is a promising feed material for our company. The cost of grain sorghum is competitive and the nutrition is high for livestock feed production.Paul Huang, Jun Jie Agricultural Trading Co.
We think more and more sorghum will be substituted. Even though the price, the basis of sorghum is very high, we still want to import. So we think more and more sorghum will come into China and we will buy and import sorghum also. Qin Zhao, New Hope Group
The feed industry in Mexico is an industry that is still growing and it is growing with a rate above the population growth. Sorghum is a great feed ingredient and it’s traditionally cheaper than other grains, and it’s easily accessible and easy to manage and store. Javier Chavez, U.S. Grains Council
