Corn Crops Cost Prediction

By  | 

Farmers in the corn making business say they welcome higher prices to make better profit from their crops.

Crop experts say corn farmers will be the only ones smiling about the higher prices, since those who need these grains to feed their farm animals will be the ones to feel the pinch.

Corn farmer Blake Stanaland said, "For the people buying this grain to feed animals, they'll probably see it, it's going to have a small impact on them, I don't think it's going to be anything they can't handle."

Agriculture experts say in 2002 ethanol plants consumed a little more than one billion bushels of corn, but say this year they'll use more than two billion.
