U.S. Grain Groups Travel to Mexico to Strengthen Relationships Following U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreemen

As the new presidential administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador prepares to take office on December 1, maintaining the deep relationships built over the past 35 years between U.S. grain groups and Mexican buyers is critical.

A delegation of representatives from leading U.S. grain groups traveled to Mexico to meet with longtime customers and newly-appointed government officials following the recently executed U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

The annual exercise brought together representatives from the U.S. Grains Council (USGC), the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), the National Sorghum Producers (NSP), the United Sorghum Checkoff Program (USCP), the National Barley Growers Association (NBGA), and national organizations representing feed grains that are promoted internationally by the USGC.

Mexico is the top foreign buyer of U.S. corn, distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), and barley, and is a key buyer of U.S. sorghum. In 2017/2018, shipments of feed grains to Mexico hit a record 25.2 metric tons - almost 1 billion bushels in corn equivalent, and a 6.3 percent increase year-on-year.
