For at least one class, typically a live production class, participants are asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons. Participants compare their opinion of an animal against the ideal as specified by industry experts, and learn organizational skills as they compose their thoughts into a cohesive set of reasons justifying their decisions.The skills of decision making, critical thinking, and problem solving are acquired throughout the process.

Why do we need corn?

Why do we need corn and what is it used for besides corn bread? Corn is one of the main ingredients used to make livestock feed (cows, poultry, pigs, etc.). Corn is also used in more than 4,000 grocery store items like shampoo, toothpaste, chewing gum, marshmallows, crayons, and paper. In Evans county, there were over 1000 acres of corn planted in crop year 2018. That sounds like a lot of corn, but that is only a drop in the bucket compared the total acres of corn grown in the United States. According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), U.S. farmers planted 91.7 million acres of corn in 2019. That’s about 69 million football fields of corn. To learn more about the many ways that we use corn in our daily lives, check out the attached infographic. To learn more about corn production, visit some of the websites below:
