Iowa, Nebraska Ag Officials Talk Trade with Turkey

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey and Nebraska Agricultural Trade Representative Stan Garbacz are packing for Turkey to accompany officials from four other states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture on a trade mission to promote exports.

Officials from Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota and Pennsylvania also have reserved space for the trip to be led by Acting USDA Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Michael Scuse next week.

Representatives from 20 U.S. companies will also travel with the group including from Iowa: Hagie Manufacturing from Clarion, Sukup Manufacturing from Sheffield, and Tri-States Grain Conditioning from Spirit Lake.

Also included are representatives from the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission and Kelly Bean Co. of Scottsbluff, Neb.

Northey says Turkey's growing middle class provides opportunities for expanded agricultural exports.
