CORN SCOOPS

Our Corn Scoops stories represent a collection of news from various sources that Illinois corn farmers might find valuable. From time to time, we also sprinkle in a bit of opinion! Our goal for Corn Scoops is to provide a service to our membership – a one stop location to catch up on the important issues of the week and to keep up to date on Illinois agriculture.

  • MEXICO'S VALUE AS A TRADE PARTNER

    Published: Tue. May 5th, 2015 by: Tricia Braid

    We’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo here at IL Corn by remembering the importance of Mexico as a buyer of corn nationally, and also specifically as a buyer of Illinois corn. Our river transportation system sends much of our corn directly to the Gulf of Mexico, where it makes the short trip to Mexican markets. This should remind us how important our river transportation system is, and with it, the need for repaired and upgraded locks and dams. Illinois Corn Marketing Board partners with the U.S. Grains Council to expand export opportunities for corn, ethanol, and DDGS. USGC leverages your checkoff …Read More »

    The American Lung Association in Illinois (ALAIL) has placed a large advertising buy on three Chicago radio stations this week. The point of the ad is to educate listeners on how higher blends of ethanol can help improve air quality. Illinois Corn Marketing Board invests farmer checkoff dollars with ALAIL to help promote ethanol education and to facilitate grants that help offset the costs of the necessary pump upgrades to make higher ethanol blends available at gas stations. You can listen to the radio advertisement for yourself by clicking here. The advertisement, which sounds more like a Public …Read More »
  • BIG OIL FEELING ETHANOL'S HEAT IN CHICAGO

    Published: Fri. May 1st, 2015 by: Tricia Braid

    If you’re in the listening area of WGN or WLS in Chicago, you’ve probably heard the terrible anti-ethanol and anti-E15 radio ads that Big Oil henchmen are airing. Yes, we’ve heard them, too. Yes, we know they’re full of lies. But here’s the thing: we must really be getting under their skin with this E15 ordinance. Otherwise, they’d just be brushing us off. IL Corn is on top of this for you, working quietly with our partners behind the scenes to make sure that renewable fuels and consumer choice win the day. In case you hadn’t heard, the City Council …Read More »
