U.S. Grains Council members today voted to elect a new slate of board of directors, selecting Julius Schaaf as chairman during the Council's 53rd Annual Board of Delegates Meeting in Ottawa, Canada.

"The world is always changing. Markets are always changing. Today competition is growing, and so are the opportunities. Our job is to figure out how to stay ahead of the changes," Schaaf told attendees of the conference.

"We know that the global middle class is growing. We know where the growth in global food demand will be. We also understand that our competitors are just as eager to serve these markets as we are. Our goal is to regain market share for U.S. grains and expand that share into the future."

Schaaf is a fifth generation farmer from Randolph, Iowa, with more than 33 years of experience in production agriculture with other family members. He farms a corn, soybean rotation.

He has been a member delegate of the Council and a member of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board since 2003. He is a past chairman of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board and has also served on the research and biotech committees for the Iowa Corn Promotion Board.
