B5 Contracting and Propane

Harvest is underway.  We know from the spring we had, this was going to be a trying year.  Know that your energy sales staff always does their best to keep you informed of buying opportunities to save you money where we can.  Whether that be forward contracting or just regular contact when cash buying so you can make an informed decision at that time.

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.
