Minnesota AgBrags

The U.S. sends many kinds of foods to these four countries. Here are some examples (and many of these things are produced in Minnesota):

  • Mexico imports lots of corn, as well as soybeans, dairy, and pork.
  • Canada imports fruits and vegetables.
  • China imports lots of soybeans, mostly as feed for its growing livestock industry.
  • Japan imports corn and red meat (Japan’s small size means it does not have much room for crops and livestock).

Whoa

What is it?

Corn - What Is It
  • Answer
  • Corn! One ear of corn has about 16 rows and 800 kernels. The number of rows is always an even number.
