Livestock, Poultry and Aquaculture

Kim Koch, Ph.D., NCI Feed Production Center Manager, is in Myanmar (formerly Burma), where he is presenting seminars to the livestock, poultry and aquaculture sectors of the Myanmar feed industry.  The trip, sponsored by the U.S. Grains Council, is designed to assist the Myanmar feed industry as it prepares to meet the increased demand for domestic and export consumption. Myanmar is a potential market for U.S. commodities (corn, DDGS), as well as for education and technical assistance. A memorandum of understanding between the USGC and feed industry representatives was signed during the proceedings. Signers of memorandum of understanding were: Mr. Win Sein, Vice Chairman of the Myanmar Livestock Association; Ms. Shellen Ng, USGC Assistant Director, Kuala Lumpur office; and Mr. U Han Tun, Executive Vice President of the Myanmar Fisheries Association.
