The Best Corn Seed

A farmer whose corn always took the first prize at the state fair had a habit of sharing his best corn seed
with all the farmers in the neighborhood.

When asked why, he said, “It is really a matter of self-interest. The wind picks up the pollen and carries it
from field to field. So if my neighbors grow inferior corn, the cross-pollination brings down the quality of
my own corn. That is why I am concerned that they plant only the very best.” (source unknown)
