donjr -- Is there still a company in your area that will come and shell your ear corn for the cobs? I believe they ground the cobs and it was used for chicken house litter. I remember seeing that years ago in Baltimore County when we used to haul goats to Lancaster and holstein heifers back from various Maryland and Pennsylvania sales and farms. Another thing I always wondered about was those dairy farms seemed to all be 120 acres, that seems an odd size to me as most every where it is 1/4 section, 1/2 section etc. was there a particular reason or was everything broke down into 40's years ago and somewhere along the line it was decided three 40's was a workable size farm? There were a lot of dairy farms in Baltimore and Harford county in the 70's and 80's and those old farmers that ran them worked, not much fancy equipment, mostly just the basics and they did it all themselves, I know they had a good fluid milk market but it was still impressive what they accomplished. Lots of bib overall millionaires at that time.

I'm not Don, but I live a little bit east. Shenk's will shell corn, they used to do it just for the cobs, but now their is a charge and the cobs I believe. I always heard they used the cobs in the mushroom industry, but I don't know for what. Farms are all different size here, a typical dairy would probably have been in the 80-110 acre size. Nothing is square, property lines follow creeks and roads and hills. I think 100 or so acres was manageable for a family with some cows, some pigs and chickens, and draft horses so that's why there are so many in that size range.
