In a second part to the series, Edgar farmer John Greer delves deeper into the Nebraska Corn Board, discussing topics such as working with Asia through the U.S. Grains Council’s Asia action team, as well as market development.

In this Part 2 of this two-part series, we take an in-depth look into the Nebraska Corn Board’s Market Development Committee, on which Edgar farmer John Greer serves, as well as get a glimpse into the intricacies of marketing U.S. corn to Asia.

Edgar is a long way from Asia. Yet through the involvement of a local farmer on the Nebraska Corn Board, some of Clay County’s corn may soon be heading to secure markets in this part of the world.

Jodi Bahr looks over the cartilage on bones with Michell Rodriguez, left, and Makenz Smith during Anatomy and Physiology class.

Hands-on learning has a new meaning at Harvard Public School, after the implementation of zSpace.

zSpace takes a subject and brings it right into the hands of a student. Take for instance the heart; students can remove layers to see inside the heart, at the ventricles and vessels.

Learning about the bones and cartilage, students can zoom in on cartilage on bones and learn about the connecting parts of the human skeletal structure.

Edgar farmer gives insider look at NE Corn Board

Edgar farmer gives insider look at NE Corn Board

RITA BRHEL | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Edgar farmer John Greer discusses the Nebraska Corn Board and how everything works and runs within the organization.

Harvest may be done, but the careful interplay of the commodity grain markets is still very much at work.

Among those behind the scenes, striving to keep the global demand strong for U.S. corn, is a farmer from Edgar.

“If you’re not a member of commodity organizations, you need to be,” said John Greer, who is in his fifth year on the Nebraska Corn Board. “You can’t take your family to McDonald’s for what it costs to join these organizations. They’re our voice. The organizations really do help promote the products that we raise.”

For a bit of nostalgia, do you remember the song “Scarborough Fair” by Simon & Garfunkel? The lyrics began:

“Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

“Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

“Remember me to the one who lives there

“For once she was a true love of mine”

It is a lyrical English ballad in which the singer asks a friend if he is going to the fair at a Yorkshire town. He suspects the friend may run into one who was a once a true love. He asks that the friend offer terms for her to again be a true love. The girl must make a shirt without seams or needle work. She must wash the shirt in a dry well. She must find an acre of land between sea foam and sand–impossible stuff. He is soliciting a bribe–a quid pro quo, if you will-for the girl to again be a “true love of mine.” And let’s not even get into the spice thing.
