Last week, U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) Chair Randy Spronk and other USMEF leaders were on hand at Commodity Classic in Houston to thank corn and soybean producers for their support. Spronk said it was very important for the red meat industry to show its support at this grower-focused event.

Spronk added that U.S.-produced corn and soy are key to the success of beef, pork, and lamb exports and are an important part of the sustainability story that USMEF shares with consumers around the globe.

In addition, the Soybean and Corn Checkoffs provide financial support for USMEF’s global marketing efforts that move grains and oilseeds through feed consumption. In 2023, U.S. red meat exports accounted for the consumption of nearly 513 million bushels of corn valued at more than $3 billion and 97 million bushels of soybeans with a value of $1.4 billion.
