Article in mainstream press re:farmers burning corn instead of gasgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I found this article today. Kind of reminds me of the stories about the Depression. Gives you a good feeling, hmmm? http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2001-02-22-farmer.htm

Interesting article. Good old American know how to the rescue again. Now my question is where would you find a grain burning furnace or how could you convert what you have. I probably will never use one since I have plenty of wood and manage my wood lot for a sustained harvest but it sure would be nice to know just in case!

I found a couple of sources on the net. Also there have been a couple of threads on this forum about them recently. http://www.cornburner.com/ http://amaize-ingenergy.com/product0.htm

Try this. During the winter, we give our Angora goats dried corn still on the ears, as a treat. They eat the kernels and leave the ears. We collected the ears and burn them in our woodstove, along with the wood.
