To help keep his weight up, I feed Freedom corn oil. He doesn’t need more energy, just more calories. Corn oil, bought at Costco is about the least expensive way to meet this need.
So how much corn goes into this 2.5 gallon container of corn oil? Quite a lot!
- 2.5 gallons of oil weighs about 21 pounds
- One bushel of corn yields approximately 1 1/2 pounds of oil (source: Wikipedia)
- So, this container contains about 14 bushels of corn!
- Since each bushel of corn weighs 56 pounds, that oil came from 780 pounds of corn.
