When you consume 40% of a limited resource such as corn (limited by the fixed number of acres to plant) you have altered the supply/demand situation in a drastic way. 45% of all poultry companies have gone bankrupt since 2009. Smithfield is the largest pork company was hurt very badly and is selling to China. Corn prices have gone from 3.00 to almost 9.00 due to the ethanol MANDATE. Consumers are paying much more for food and there is a blending fee for mixing the ethanol, which does nothing to save CO2 emmisions or run an engine efficiently. This mandate, like everything else our federal gov. touches is a sham.
