Thirty professionals from across the globe connected together at The Northern Crops Institute (NCI) for its annual Grain Procurement Management for Importers Course.

The eight-day course, that ran from September 9th through the 18th, began in Fargo, ND, with additional stops in both Duluth and Minneapolis, MN. Participants of the course were educated on how the U.S. grain handling system functions, and how to successfully purchase high quality grains from the U.S.

Course participants benefited from various activities including electronic trading game exercises at NDSU's Barry Hall, meetings with professionals in the grain trading industry, lectures with world class experts on U.S. grains, as well as tours of farms, a grain elevator, and an export grain terminal. The program also featured a reception at Wurst Bier Hall, as well as a graduation dinner at the NDSU Alumni Center.

Program manager, Brian Sorenson stated "one of our hopes for this course was to educate people from across the world about U.S. grown wheat and feed grain, to show them first-hand how extraordinary the quality is, and I think that is something we achieved." Sorenson also noted that this one of the longest running courses at NCI.

This course would not have been possible without help from the U.S. Grains Council and U.S. Wheat Associates.
