South Dakota Ethanol Plants Post Milo Bids

SOUTH DAKOTA – As South Dakota producers face late plant a re-plant conditions with sorghum, area ethanol plants, including NuGen Energy in Marion and Ringneck Energy in Onida, posted milo bids, giving producers local market options.

“These plants certainly offer additional markets for our milo during times when farmers need options,” said Adam Schindler, a farmer from Reliance, South Dakota, and National Sorghum Producers Legislative Committee member. “With the historically tough time we have had getting this crop in, this provides the opportunity to still plant milo with good yield potential and have a known market to sell it to.”
