HAVANA - A trade delegation led by Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman finalized deals Tuesday to sell wheat, beans and soy products worth some $27 million to Cuba, fulfilling most of a trade agreement signed this summer.

On his first trip to Cuba in August, Heineman agreed to export $30 million of Nebraska agricultural goods to the communist-run island's food import company, Alimport.

Less than three months later, on Tuesday he signed off on several individual deals including 25,000 tons of high-protein soymeal, 75,000 tons of wheat and 7,000 tons of beans.
