Steven Schuler of Woodland is a member of the 2013-15 class in the Rice Leadership Development program. The class recently participated in its first session — a look at rice production and marketing programs in the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana.

In Texas, the group met with USA Rice Federation staff for an overview of the rice industry, updates on domestic and international promotion efforts, and information about USA Rice’s organizational structure. The class also visited Anheuser-Busch, the largest domestic user of rice; Creed Rice Inc., where alumnus Michael Creed explained the role of international brokers; and the offices of the US Rice Producers Association.

In Louisiana, the class toured the Louisiana State University Rice Research Station, where alumnus Dr. Steve Linscombe summarized the latest rice research.

The Rice Leadership Development Program is sponsored by John Deere Company, RiceTec Inc. and American Commodity Company through The Rice Foundation and is managed by the USA Rice Federation.
