Significant new opportunities often arise whenever there is a major course correction in an industry, such as the ethanol industry’s course correction reported in the Wall Street Journal, Tuesday June 12, 2012. We believe such an opportunity is the case for SweetPro Feeds, referenced in the Wall Street Journal article, as the ethanol industry adjusts to a leveling-off of its remarkable growth.
SweetPro Feeds, a division of Harvest Fuel, Inc, has its roots in the ethanol industry, but took a markedly different approach, focusing on feed first with ethanol viewed as an eventual by-product. Now that unique perspective is opening the door to an important new opportunity – the purchase of the idled ADM ethanol plant in Walhalla, North Dakota, SweetPro’s hometown.
Operation of the facility under SweetPro Feeds would shift the emphasis from ethanol, to feed first, and eventually to include food products. Company president, Robert Thornberg, is a former general manager of the Walhalla ethanol plant and, as such, has practical industry experience to modify the facility to integrate with the company’s growing feed business.
“The feed emphasis” said Thornberg “is central to a risk reduction orientation of the company, to operate profitably even in an environment where grain prices may rise while fuel prices are flat or falling.” Thornberg added that “Currently, as the WSJ article points out, corn prices are projected lower. Thus the timing of such a purchase, where feed is the focus and the plant purchase price is low, is viewed as particularly opportune.”
