Energy Sales Update

September has blessed us with a lot of heat and wind which has accelerated the crop progress. We once thought we would have a fair LP usage season to now our thoughts have changed. We still will use some, as some start corn harvest in that 23-24% range to minimize header losses, but the demand will be nothing like we expected. Therefore, supply shouldn’t be an issue.  Our local storage of 900,000 gallons gives us ample buffer for any demand we encounter and with supplier access not being stressed by allocation, it should be a seamless fall LP supply wise.
