State to run ag trade mission to Colombia

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) – The state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is organizing a trip to Colombia in mid-July to increase trade.

The agriculture department says Colombia's livestock industry has a growing demand for U.S. exports like animal feed, feed ingredients, livestock genetics and agricultural equipment.  Last year, the U.S. moved more than $1 billion in agricultural exports to Colombia.

U.S. producers will meet with buyers and tour a feed mill.  An interpreter will also be on the trip.

Producers who want to go on the trip have to register by April 22 and pay their costs.
