Ken Rosenow with the Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board farms about 900 acres in the Oconomowoc, Wisconsin area. He tells Brownfield, “We’ve been trying to get more and more products into the European market, especially. We’ve been doing well with Japan and Southeast Asia and so forth, but to get more of our corn in any form going into Europe is great news.”
