Recently, MaxYield Cooperative hosted three visitors from Brazil. The group from South America was here to learn more about Midwestern agriculture. The trip and visit was arranged by INTL FCStone in West Des Moines.
While in Iowa, Jorge Gracioli, grains consultant at INTL FCStone in Brazil, and Rogerio Cerqueira and his daughter Viviane toured north central Iowa. Rogerio and Viviane are the owners of a Brazil based agribusiness that is involved in grain commodities.
Their tour began at AGP's Emmetsburg soybean processing facility and continued with stops at MaxYield's Mallard, West Bend and Belmond unit train shipping facilities before concluding at FCStone's office in Chicago.
