Commodity Production by Country

Interesting article by Farm Journal (graphic from FJ, also).  A very interesting source article from the University of the Potomac which shows which countries are the top producer of which commodity.

Fun fact – Cow’s Milk is the top agricultural commodity in 37 countries, including the US.  The top 5 worldwide commodities are Cow’s Milk, Sugar Cane, corn, wheat, and rice.

Wabash & Erie Canal – A Chat with a Treasure of Delphi

Conversation with a Treasure of Delphi, Dan McCain.  I had the chance to catch up with him, recently, and we discussed Delphi history and the Wabash & Erie Canal history, which has been a life-long passion for him.  He is only two generations removed from the Wabash & Erie Canal heyday, and was born and currently lives in his family home very near the restored section of the Canal.  The importance of the Canal to the economic development of Delphi and Carroll County cannot be over-emphasized.

Please enjoy this 16-minute video about this important era in Carroll County and Delphi History.
