Opening world markets to U.S. Feed Grains – no problem. All in a day’s work for the U.S. Grains Council located in Washington D.C. With such an important mission, it’s no wonder the council didn’t trust just anyone with their updated website.

Ecra worked with the Council’s communications team to update the site design to be mobile friendly along with migrating the technology platform the site was built on to use Drupal – a content management system allowing USGC staff to take on much of daily content editing internally.

The market data area of the site features a grain equivalent calculator (Grain-in-all-forms) to convert raw monthly U.S. export data from the USDA into feed grain ‘equivalent’ values – to communicate a more holistic view of total U.S. feed grain usage in exports and related feed grain products.
