At the first meeting of the Committee on Feed Composition on August 15 and 16, 1946, a plan was initiated to study the chemical composition of the 1946 corn crop in the United States. This study was later extended to include the 1947 crop. Corn was selected because a large percentage of the total production is used for feeding, and more corn is fed to livestock in the United States than any other grain. Furthermore, evidence was presented indicating that the percentage of protein in corn had decreased over a period of years. Composition of Corn in the United States, 1946-1947 determines the validity of, and possible reasons for, this alleged diminution.
