Subject: Organic Corn & Soybeans Grown in the Upper Mid-West ?

Greencastle, Pa.
You Farmers that farm in the upper mid-west corn belt,how many acres of Organic #1 corn & #2 acres of soybeans do you [best est.] think are raised in the States of Iowa,Michigan & Minnesota ????? I read in the local Ag. Paper on Sat. that the Co. in the part article seen below that use 70,000 bu. of organic corn & 50,000 bu. of organic soybeans a week to feed his chickens. That works out to 3,640,000 bu. corn a year and 2,600,000 bu of soybeans a year. Now if the adv.bu. per acre in parts of Iowa & Minnesota are about 195-200+ that would come to about 18,000+ ac. for corn and 47,48,000 ac. for beans. Now this is ALL for ONE Integrator in S.C. Pa.!!!!!!!!!! There are at least four if not more in this area that claim to be ALL ORGANIC !!!!!!!!! I just REALLY wander how [I know a lot of it is a huge joke] LARGE the organic SCANDAL is. Your thought's ?????? This would [if true] work out to hundreds of thousands of acres just for Pa. livestock. My head is spinning !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
