Missouri Commodity Flow and Infrastructure Social Media Campaign

posted by Spencer Parkinson on Friday, January 3, 2020

As we wrap up 2019, we look ahead to year 2020! We will be wrapping up our American Feed Industry Association Social Media Campaign in January and after that, we will be starting our Missouri Commodity Flow and Infrastructure Social Media Campaign. With this campaign, we will highlight a study commissioned by the Missouri Soybean Association and Missouri Corn Growers Association.This research was conducted so that there could be a resource for people to be able to understand the current infrastructure situation as it relates to moving farm commodities to market, provide context to objectively asses the current status of the infrastructure, and to identify ways to improve the flow of farm commodities to market.  

In regards to the social media campaign, we will be posting information for 9 weeks regarding Missouri’s state total and then all of the 8 congressional districts. In one post, information will be regarding how much corn, soybeans, grain sorghum, and wheat are produced all together in the state and individually by each district. Another post will be regarding how much corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, and wheat are used in livestock feed, how much is stored on and off the farm, how much goes to exports, and how much is sent to further processing.  

For example, this will be the first post to kick off the campaign! This post is related to the state totals for Missouri’s production of commodities.

In addition, Figure 2 will be posted each week. This is in regards to state totals for what Missouri’s commodities are used.

Thank you to those who followed along with our AFIA campaign! We look forward to continuing to share our research with you via social media and we hope you enjoy the Missouri Commodity Flow and Infrastructure Social Media Campaign.
