Is turkey giving you sticker shock this year? Here’s why.
Corn is the primary feed for turkeys, and ethanol subsidies have diverted much of the crop into fuel production – and that raises the price of feed for your gobbler.
Under the ethanol mandate, not only do we put valuable feed material into gasoline production, but we subsidize the whole process. It’s a lose-lose all around.
The real victims are those in the Third World, who rely on grain from American farms to feed poor people.
It’s time to stop using food for fuel. Let’s END the ethanol mandate!
