      US farms plan to double corn acreage in 2007 as compared to 2006.
      Production may also double per acre with seed and fertilizer
      management. The net result could produce four times as much corn in
      2007 as compared to 2006.

      $3/bu corn is the farm goal to profit $0.10 per bushel. Corn prices
      above $3/bu fall into the "two in ten" category.

      Beauties of heating with corn:
      1. My neighbor is the local producer of corn. Production, storage,
      and management is local. Transportation is minimal.
      2. The energy and finances for Corn stays in my local community
      3. There is no monopoly for corn - 2 million farms compete fairly well
      Local Corn production is not a foreign illegal alien or terrorist
      production
      4. Corn prices are stable for 200 years recorded histoy with year
      1817 recording the all time high price of $5-$10 per bushel of corn.
      5. US Farms have a rule of thumb called the "Two in Ten". To stay on
      the family farm the local family farm should strive to make a farm
      profit at least two years every ten years.
      6. Corn ethanol production helps hold the line on gasoline prices.
      The low cost to produce corn ethanol prevents gasoline from going any
      higher. Foreign Petro prices are not based on production cost but
      rather seek the highest profit level attainable by public deception.
      7. Increased demand for corn results in increased production and
      ultimately lower corn production cost. How could that be? Look to
      the link below to find the following corn statistics:
      A. In 2006 $1.8 billion went to 739,000 US farmers at $48.88/acre
      (avg)to keep 39.2 million acres "out of production".
      B. The potential corn production for the acres "not planted" is
      capable of producing enough corn energy to supply the total energy
      used for all the homes in America. Simple math:
      C. The 300 million Americans live in 150 million homes.
      D. The avg US home energy use has stabalized at 50 million BTU/yr (75-
      100 bushel of corn per home) for the past 15 years.
      E. 150 bu/acre is the US avg corn production each year. Proper
      fertilizer and seed selection can produce 300 bu / ac / yr.
      F. One acre of corn presently produces enough energy for two homes
      but is capable of producing enough energy for four homes. Total
      energy only half is for heating purposes.
      G. Eight homes heated per acre over 40 million acres is enough heat
      for 320 million average American homes or the total energy needs for
      160 million US homes each year.

      CONCLUSION: The forty million acres "not planted" each year is
      capable of producing enough corn energy to supply the total energy
      needs of every home in America. The money stays in America. The
      workers stay in America. Every country on the globe is likewise
      capable of growing corn energy to supply local energy needs in an
      environmentally friendly cost effective manner.

      I am fully aware of the influence of dino petro paid prophets,
      university paid professors, government agronomists, and aggrivated
      oil investors that falsely calculate and expouse otherwise. If you
      can not think, calculate, observe, put your own ear to the ground,
      self evaluate, and endure the inconvenience, corn is not for you.
      Although the good earth is fully capable, not everyone is consious of
      Corn energy and the benefit thereof. Some people have more money
      than common corn sense. Not everyone is wisely willing to put the ear
      to the ground and eagerly energize ears from the ground. There are
      many ears in the air that just haven't heard about corn yet. There
      may be some air heads that just wait for someone else to tell them
      what to do.

      For actual USDA stats to substantiate the above conclusions, please
      direct the ear to the horses mouth listed below:
