corn prices

I buy cracked corn for my chickens and over the last 2 months the proice has gone from 5.25 per 50 pounds to 7.95 . this is what I found on the net about this ...Warnings of higher food prices headed for American supermarkets and restaurants were swallowed easily across much of farm country Wednesday.

The big gulp came when the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that global demand had pushed U.S. corn supplies to their lowest point in 15 years.

The price of corn, which has doubled over the past six months, affects most food product

Yes, it does. If you read the ingredients in most everything prepared, canned or boxed, you'll see why...not to mention ethanol.
