This Friday Farm Photo was snapped by Dan Cole from the loading sight at Bunge in East Hannibal, Missouri, between lock and dam 22 and 23 on the Mississippi river. It is gathering up barges at East Hannibal to form one large barge to bring down the river. For more information on how vital the river system is to Illinois economy, click here.
Last week we showed you a picture of a corn field in Shawneetown, this weeks photo comes from a Wapella farm. To bring some perspective to how tall the corn is, we’ve enlisted a model to help out, a one year old model.
We at Illinois Corn love the Midwestern Gold blog. We love it so much we feel like honoring them by ripping off their Friday Farm Photo idea! After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
