A purchase order Congressman Don Manzullo signed with the Columbian Ambassador Luis Alberto Moreno took place Monday, October 18th.

Columbia is buying 20,000 tons of corn from Northern Illinois Farmers. That's nearly two million dollars worth of feed.

Corn is Illinois' number one export, and this is just another example of how Illinois farmers are making continuous efforts to work with foreign markets.
