Ethanol industry struggles under current policies

Federal policy is reducing demand for ethanol which will ultimately hurt farmers, said Jeff Zueger, CEO of Midwest AgEnergy, which owns and operates Dakota Spirit AgEnergy. “It is an industry-wide problem that can affect the local farmer,” Zueger said. “It is becoming more and more of a problem.” Dakota Spirit AgEnergy is an ethanol plant producing 70 million gallons per year utilizing locally grown corn as its raw material. The plant has operated since 2015.
