    FARGO, N.D. - The Northern Crops Institute (NCI) is hosting the American Soybean Association's World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) Program of feed mill ingredient buyers Monday and Tuesday.  

    The team is hearing lectures from leaders in the risk management, feed ingredient purchasing, and animal nutrition industries. These industry professionals will provide lecture material on soybean futures markets and price predictions, feed ingredient purchasing tools, and the importance of soybean quality in feeds (particularly amino acid content in beans). In addition, they will take part in discussions and hands on activities that allow them to process the information they receive.

    George Goblish, WISHH Program Committee Member and Minnesota soybean farmer says "Sending the American Soybean Association's WISHH Program trade teams to NCI is one of the many ways WISHH connects trade and development with U.S. soy. NCI training is valuable to WISHH's strategic partners in developing economies who learn innovative ways to use or expand their use of our soy." 

    Goblish finished by saying "WISHH leverages soybean checkoff and U.S. Department of Agriculture funds to work with these companies before, during and after they receive the NCI training. Together, we can grow these business relationships for U.S. soy trade in emerging economies in Asia, Africa and Central America."
