This week Mike and Janice travel to Bend, OR for the U.S. Wheat Associates summer board meeting. The summer board meeting is hosted by the state of the current board Chair. Darren Padget of Grass Valley, OR is the departing USW chair. Darren is also a member of the Wheat Marketing Center Board of Directors, and sits on the Oregon Wheat Commission. We partner closely with U.S. Wheat Associates in promoting American grown wheat for export around the world, through education and research.
