One of the presenters this afternoon was Hugh Whaley, Osborn & Barr Communications.
Hugh was representing the soybean industry and the United Soybean Board in particular.
He says that there was a lot of interest from the group in the kinds of soybean varieties that are in development that will help provide more oil for both food and fuel use.
He also says that feeding soybeans to animals is still the biggest use of the commodity but that may be challenged in the future as the biofuels business grows.
