I found this while cleaning out an old barn yesterday. It was nailed to a door, along with a couple other pieces of burlap sacks. I am trying to get a date for this. It is a 100 pound corn gluten feed bag from the Clinton Company, Clinton Iowa. I have been able to find out a little about the company but not much, and nothing that can give me a date. I also have been unable to find any match’s online. Any help with this is greatly appreciated!

I would suggest you contact the Clinton County Historical Society in Iowa. Pretty sure they can help you. I do believe ADM bought out the Clinton Company, but the folks at the Society can give you an idea of age on your bag. Good luck.
Thank you! Will look into that.

It's Hilary's feed bag! She's wearing them now for dresses.

The sarcastic comments about "Hillary" are definitely political.

:)
Naw..... I make remarks like that all the time, no politics involved. Matter of fact I'm probably the most un political person you'll meet. Here's my favorite Tshirt. I bought six of them!
