Thoughts on Social Media, Baxter Black & Ethanol

Jan 10, 2011

***Editor's Note:  The following comments were received following the January 8-9, 2011 edition of U.S. Farm Report...

#1:

John Phipps and the great team at U.S. Farm Report,

    My work is in electronics. The computer, email, etc. are essential parts of my work and life and that's OK. I've never heard a more insightful commentary on the inherent problems with social media! Good communication is a tremendous thing, but I think social media is pretty limited for real communication. (Besides, like John, I don't have that much spare time
either!)
   I see your program on KSTC TV, channel 45 in the Minneapolis area. I was raised on a farm and enjoy your program tremendously.
Regards,
Tom Lingbloom

   I would like to see the results of a study (there must be at least two ! ) about making ethanol from corn and whether using corn for ethanol decreases the food supply.   I would bet the food supply is enhanced a little because the stillage is good animal feed.  China just bought several million metric tons of dried stillage.  And there is a facility in Arizona that doesn’t dry the stillage --- they use it immediately as feed for holstein  feeder cattle.

Ok. That (Baxter Black's commentary on "Tracto" Therapy) was one of the funniest  ones yet. And I bet, some one will try setting up something like it.  Thanks for having him on you program.

Will you be having another marketing rally  like the one December 2010 in the near future?
Thanks,  Scott Draper

***Editor's Note:  The 2011 Marketing Rally is tentatively planned for early December in Chicago - more details to come...
