Thank you Kat. Just as a side note, this type of corn is not for humans to eat. Around here we call it "cow corn". When harvested this time of year it is used to make feed for cows, pigs, chicken, rabbits and other farm animals. A good part of it also goes into the fabrication of ethanol for automobiles. (ethanol- blended gasoline)

So it looks as good as the variety we like so much to eat with butter but its to hard to be enjoyable.

great photo! I love the composition, texture and colour.

Just to differ, one can tell by looking that it would not be nice to eat but chewy and tough. My horse, however, would be licking his lips.

As soon as I saw it the words "cattle corn" came to mind. In Germany the locals used to laugh at Canadians who would actually eat this stuff with butter. They would have machines harvesting it and spewing it into huge carriers like a tree mulcher for animal feed. . . . they never eat it.

Thank you Bambi for your good comments. I'll bet your horse would have a great feast on this corn.
Thanks Corp. Here it its quite common to have large "cattle corn" fields but we also have the sweet corn so many love to eat.

Great photo, zenon! Actually it's amazing (almost a pun!) how many things corn actually gets into including textiles, cars and not just for fuel, Well check it out. (http://www.ontariocorn.org/classroom/products.html)

It's actually a bit scary really. Very nice composition and color in your photo!

Thanks for your nice comments Raiven and also for the link. It's quite interesting to see all the applications there are for corn.

Corn on the cob with butter is a common meal here in Aussie and New Zealand too.
