How much corn is currently stored in the U.S.?

    Obviously, with the massive fluctuations in the nation’s and the world’s food supply, this number would be hard to pinpoint exactly, but we can estimate it. The US alone harvest nearly 10 billion bushels of corn every year. Very little of this is actually eaten directly by humans. The majority of it is processed in either animal feed, or food additives such as high fructose corn syrup. The corn that is processed however, can spend months, even years sitting inside grain silos and warehouses waiting to be processed. American farmers are actually producing more corn than is being used, and so grain elevators continue to be backed up by tons and tons of unused, unprocessed corn.
