STU ELLIS: East central Illinois farmers holding out hope

Unofficial word from a reliable grain source today is that early corn yields in east central Illinois may be in the 150 bushel range. That would be sufficient for 1980 when the U.S. produced 5 billion bushels per year, with enough left over for a few hundred million bushels to be exported. But that is far from acceptable in 2022 when it will take 15 billion bushels of corn to meet the 2.5 billion bushel export demand.

Deer Donation Pilot Program Details Discussed In Interview With Representatives From U Of I Extension Office

A new pilot program is trying to get off the ground in Central Illinois. University of Illinois Extension is currently working on a pilot for a venison donation program in twelve Illinois counties. The goal of our program is to provide a pathway to expand community access to lean protein throughout East-Central Illinois. By engaging hunters to donate their deer and meat processors to produce ground venison, a local source of lean protein will be available to food pantry clients. Clients will also receive recipes and resources from Illinois Extension to help them prepare venison at home, which might be unfamiliar to some individuals and families.
