Business Segments Description

Ethanol Production Segment

Industry Overview. Ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol or grain alcohol, is a colorless liquid produced by fermenting carbohydrates found in a number of different types of grains, such as corn, wheat and sorghum, and other cellulosic matter found in plants. Most of the ethanol produced in the United States is made from corn because it contains large quantities of carbohydrates that convert into glucose more easily than most other kinds of biomass, can be handled efficiently and is in greater supply than other grains. According to the USDA, one bushel, or 56 pounds, of corn, produces approximately 2.8 gallons of ethanol, 15.5 pounds of distillers grains and 0.7 pounds of corn oil, on average. Outside of the Unites States, sugarcane is the primary feedstock used to produce ethanol.

Ethanol is a significant component of the biofuels industry, which includes all transportation fuels derived from renewable biological materials. Biofuels are an excellent oxygenate and source of octane. When added to petroleum-based transportation fuels, oxygenates reduce vehicle emissions. Ethanol is the most economical oxygenate and source of octanes available on the market and its production costs are competitive with gasoline.

Agribusiness and Energy Services Segment

Our agribusiness and energy services segment includes five grain elevators in four states with combined grain storage capacity of approximately 11.6 million bushels, and grain storage at our ethanol plants of approximately 48.7 million bushels.

We buy bulk grain, primarily corn and soybeans, from area producers, and provide grain drying and storage services to those producers. The grain is used as feedstock for our ethanol plants or sold to grain processing companies and area livestock producers. Bulk grain commodities are traded on commodity exchanges. Inventory values are affected by changes in these markets and spreads. To mitigate risks related to market fluctuations from purchase and sale commitments of grain, as well as grain held in inventory, we enter into exchange-traded futures and options contracts that function as economic hedges at times.

Food and Food Ingredients Segment

Our cattle feedlot operation has the capacity to support 73,000 head of cattle and 2.8 million bushels of grain storage capacity. We buy feeder cattle from producers, order buyers and livestock auctions, the majority of which are from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. The finished cattle are then sold to meat processors. Bulk cattle commodities are traded on commodity exchanges. Inventory values are affected by changes in these markets and spreads. To mitigate risks related to market fluctuations from purchase and sale commitments of cattle and cattle held in inventory, we enter into exchange-traded futures and options contracts that function as economic hedges at times.

Our vinegar operation includes seven production facilities. Vinegar is sold primarily to major food industry participants, including leading branded food companies, private label food manufacturers and companies serving the foodservice channel. Products include white distilled vinegar and numerous specialty vinegars for retail and industrial uses. Vinegar is distributed primarily in bulk using 5,600 gallon tanker trailers. We also have four distribution warehouses located in California, Oregon, Texas and Quebec, Canada.

Partnership Segment

Our partnership segment provides fuel storage and transportation services through (i) 39 ethanol storage facilities located at or near our 17 ethanol production plants, (ii) eight fuel terminal facilities located near major rail lines, and (iii) a leased railcar fleet and other transportation assets.

Transportation and Delivery. Most of our ethanol plants are situated near major highways or rail lines to ensure efficient movement. We are able to move product from our ethanol plants to bulk terminals via truck, railcar or barge. We also manage the logistics and transportation requirements of our customers to improve our fleet’s efficiency and reduce operating costs.
