It is feed corn or something else

Notes:

  • Corn can be used for so many things – surprisingly, only about 1% of the corn harvest is for sweet corn that we eat.
  • The other 99% is for corn feed – used for animal feed – production of corn syrup and meal – biofuel and other by products:

  • The corn harvest is tough work? just like any other harvest; it’s long hours and dusty work to get the corn harvest it. And everything depends on the market – the price the farmer can get with its crop:
