🌽Local Iowa Farmer™🌽 As of July 17th 2017, the corn is taller than me, and I'm 6'3"! As an Iowan, I know a thing or two about corn. Almost all the corn you see growing in the fields are used for either livestock feed or ethanol. Corn is also used in thousands of products you use on a daily basis... like shampoo, toothpaste, chewing gum, marshmallows, crayons and paper! Wow! Corn is crazy awesome! It's also super hot when you're taking a #selfie in a cornfield. Seriously, it's had to be like a bazillion degrees.
