“Do your homework and know what you are getting yourself into. (Farming) is not for the faint of heart. You’ve got to have a passion for it." (Lowell Neitzel)
Did you know the corn humans eat is different from the corn that cattle eat? Most of the corn people eat is sweet corn. Cattle and other livestock eat field corn.
