Know Your Wisconsin: Corn Feed used to Fuel Beef

Air Date: 01/15/2020 -

Reeb Farms Incorporated in Whitewater, WI grows approximately 3,500 acres of corn and soy. The corn grown here is different compared to the sweet corn purchased at your local grocery store because it’s dried and ground into animal feed. Producing healthy feed is paramount to nurturing livestock and even results in better beef selection when it eventually makes it to the dinner table. Corn produced here goes into the beef value chain, meaning that once it’s harvested much of it goes to an animal nutrition plant and then heads to beef production. Another portion of corn from Reeb Farms goes to ethanol production.
