Our government spent billions to subsidize and promote using millions of acres of precious American farmland to replace imported oil is unconscionable.
Now that corn is worth three times the past 20 year average at $9.00 per bushel and nearly half the U.S. crop is going to produce ethanol, we may have started a food inflation cycle that will grow out of control.
Can you believe that we slow down our oil imports and increase food imports!
We need to use American farm land for more than just fuel!
Out of desperation many animal production farms have resorted to using up to 20% ethanol by-products in their diets. Ethanol by-products are dangerous- antibiotic and chemical laced loads of garbage! I would not feed any animal this kind of product ever.
Food vs. Fuel leadership has gone amuck!
We at Bell & Evans have not cut quality in anything we do and our plans are to continue to improve in all areas. This year we added fully recyclable boxes to our program and just recently started our SIA system. We now think that we have the humane slaughter method for poultry in the World.
