  1. Excellent reporting … “I have said we have to see some results!” When the meat packing industry was converting to, hogs slaughtered by “big meats” supply chain…. most of us who raised the animals where bleeding red ink to the tune of .17 cents a lb for sow and boar stock and 30 cents a lb for market animals. I quite!…THAT”S what they wanted to have happen. The next year I had some corn left to pick, I hauled it into town and had the elevator dry it , the market was 1.13 cents a bushel, after drying I got a check .97 cents per Bu. I guess they, in turn, ground it and hauled it out to the barns that put me out of business. Ya, I was the dumb one, they said either get in or get buried! I got buried all right! the next year corn shot up to around 4.00 a Bu… HOW… can any body afford to pay that kind of price for corn ! (was the cry!) I invested in a new ethanol plant so I had a different place to take my corn!
