    Yep!.read it and weep..........and the drought of the US has affected the corn supply dramatically.... buy beef now....many famrers dumped their steers before there were problems feeding them....but beef will rocket by wintertime....same for pork.
     
    And....your energy costs, plastics, and other corn-based products will be feeling the pinch
