Miles from home, KyCorn had the opportunity to showcase it’s ethanol programs with the nearly 4,700 farmers who attended this year’s Commodity Classic in San Antonio.

At center in the trade show, was KyCorn’s demonstration car, a 1965 AC Cobra replica optimized to run on E85. KyCorn sponsored the build and utilizes the car to promote the benefits of ethanol at events across the country. The car prompted many conversations about ethanol promotions.

Thank you to Elissa Gilliam for coming to Commodity Classic to interact with farmers and better understand their top priorities.
