A Special Independence Day Message from Jim Woster (Part 2)
Welcome to Corn Comments! I'm Jim Woster. We’re brought to you by the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, a volunteer group of farmers who promote corn in this state, the United States, and around the globe.
Well, I hope you and yours had a super 4th of July birthday party and that you were one of the food producers who caught a shot of rain. You know it's so easy to take for granted the privileges we have living in this great country. In my opinion, right at the top of that list of what we take for granted is the food that we eat. The United States has access to the most nutritious, abundant, and economical food supply anywhere in the world. That is really special. Just as special are the folks who are responsible for producing that food are farming ranch families. You know every year they deal with weather and prices, of which they have so little control and yet somehow they manage to keep doing what they do, doing it often, and doing it well. You know there's not a meal item from meat to cereal that did not originate on the land. We are a blessed nation for sure.
On behalf of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, be safe in your labors and thanks for all that you do!
