THESE PILES ARE THE REASON WE NEED ETHANOL MARKETS AND NEW LOCKS AND DAMS

A few miles away from the IL Corn home office, this is happening today.  Farmers are bring their corn to Yuton Elevator, where the elevator has had to increase their amount of ground storage just to try to hold it all.

Right now, Yuton has 2.3 million bushels of ground storage for the corn coming out of the field.  They have storage that is still not full, as you can see in the above photo, but our farmers are reporting that they are only about 50% finished getting their corn harvested.

We have SO MUCH CORN right now all over the Midwest.  These piles are the reason we work for increased ethanol markets and upgraded locks and dams.

Although non-farmers think that we don’t have enough corn to feed all our markets, WE DO!  These piles are proof!  We need ethanol as a growing market to use up all this corn.  We need locks and dams to get our corn to international markets.

  1. Hey, if you make too much of something (like inedible industrial corn) that nobody wants just force the taxpayer to buy it (or burn it = ethanol) up so you can keep making money, right?
