It’s been a little over a year since I was last in New Orleans for the U.S. Grains Council meeting. My travels there this week were for the U.S. Meat Export Federation. Both of these organizations open up export markets all over the world for corn and corn-fed red meat.
The first evening of the meeting after the port tour – read about that here - we had a river cruise with hors d'oeuvres at sunset. The weather was nice and warm, there was a good breeze and it was just simply a pretty evening.
The next evening after meetings, we took a stroll to Bourbon Street to catch some local food, drinks and music.
My friend and counterpart from Iowa Corn, Carrie and I had a great time!
It was a fun time, but I was ready to come home. You can see more pictures here.
