Much of the corn Nebraska farmers produce stays in Nebraska through ethanol, livestock feed and other corn products. By using more Nebraska corn in Nebraska, we’re capturing more of the corn’s value right here in the state. That’s good for the state’s economy, rural communities and Nebraska corn farmers. Because Nebraska corn farmers are so efficient, more corn is produced than is used by the state, which means some is exported to ensure a healthy agricultural trade economy. The pie chart shows a further estimated breakdown by use.
