Corn ethanol has expired, there are plenty of other sources from which ethanol may be made (switchgrass, post extracted sugar cane, CORN STALKS , swamp willow, algae, etc etc). The problem with the ethanol corn subsidy was that it was a special "treat" by a DEM congress and a GOP president who was conservative on only certain things.
As a farmer, weve had to compete with ethanol production for our cattle feed. Because of the ethanol"run" and the subsidy, the growers were seeking out non-food buyers of corn FIRST.
Your prices of meat and corn syrup etc have been going up as a result.
Farmers love this death of the subsidy. I get a few tons of feed blown into my Fibredome this week. Ive been paying up to 20$ cwt for a corn oats molasses mix. Before the local ethanol run began about 4 years ago, we paid 10$. Govt was responsible but we need to recall that it was both parties that were bought.
