Education an Important Goal of Fly-In

Bill Couser presents corn kernel product display to EPA’s Bill Wehrum

2018 marked the 10th year for the American Coalition for Ethanol‘s Annual Fly-In to Washington, D.C., and Iowa livestock producer and ethanol investor Bill Couser has been to most of those events over the years.

“I think the most important thing we do when we come to these fly-ins is educate people,” said Couser, who owns Couser Cattle Company in Nevada, Iowa. “And it seems like every year with the new staffers, the new laws, the new regulations, we’re still telling people that you get a co-product from corn when you put it through an ethanol plant. So it’s all about education and keeping everybody up to speed.”

Couser always brings a number of “Cracking the Kernel” displays that he developed and had produced with support from Monsanto. He has also hosted a number of policymakers at his Iowa ranch, including USDA Sec. Sonny Perdue last May and Administrator EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt in December.
