Sheldon, North Dakota farmer Dan Spiekermeier will be among a group from Northern Soy Marketing traveling to Thailand this month. This delegation will promote the use of northern grown soybeans for poultry and livestock feeding. Soybeans grown in the north typically have greater concentrations of amino acids that can be beneficial for animal agriculture. “Our nutritional bundle is just as good as the southern grown soybeans that typically have a higher crude protein content,” says Spiekermeier. Thailand is the second largest importer of U.S. soybeans in Southeast Asia and Spiekermeier sees even more potential for market growth.
