Are you sure it wasn't sorghum?

I am indeed a city boy, but I've hunted through hundreds of corn fields and yes, I do know the difference. This was in Nebraska, where corn is one of our major economic drivers and a major source of corn for the U.S.

Now, could the corn appear ("fill in") later? Maybe. I don't know, I suppose it's possible, but I've never seen this happen. Two things I'm sure of: 1) The 2 farmers I met with are forecasting their corn yield this year to be zero, and planning to use their crop as sileage, whatever that is. :) 2) There were no cobs on the stalks in most (all?) the fields we drove through last weekend.

Maybe this is not so uncommon? I thought it was strange to say the least.
