Shelling down the corn
I had a very pleasant conversation with a gentleman from some british/american trade commission. ... and then he shelled down the corn ...
I suggest it means he came true. A considerable amount of rural Georgia, USA is corn country and corn is very important in daily life When you shell corn (remove the kernels) you come to the core.
Re: Shelling down the corn
My guess is it means to "boil down" an issue, to strip away the coverings, to get to the heart/core of an issue.

How about "mad as a wet hen"? That was me today, when I had to stay after hours.
Also "separate the wheat from the chaff."
Get to the nitty gritty, the bottom line.
