“I appreciate the opportunity to serve as chairman for the upcoming year, welcoming new board members and working alongside others on issues we see coming forward,” noted Schneider. “The Missouri Corn Merchandising Council works hard to expand markets and promote today’s industry. In the coming year, we will continue working closely with our partners at the U.S. Grains Council and U.S. Meat Export Federation to open new and protect existing markets for U.S. corn, ethanol, and distillers grains in other countries. We also look forward to promoting corn and exploring areas of growth here at home.”
