Great article from Nina Bakht Halal. She certainly shares how important it is for the U.S. cooperatives and independent processors to be on the ground in all the export counties of the world.

What so many dairy producers don't understand is that USDEC can go to a country and find a potential market for U.S. processors but USDEC can't make the sale. The U.S. processors need to be there consistently as she mentions to become the face of the U.S. dairy industry. The issue I have mentioned before is that we need to make what the export market wants not just offer what we sell in the U.S.
