- You can pick whichever program you would like, or you can participate in both.
- You have the ability to “price” the balance of your bushels this year at any point during the window of the pricing average. (Example: If you believe the highs are in and you want the average pricing to stop, you can price out the remaining balance of bushels that day.)

WHAT WE DO
Siouxland Energy was formed to build, own, and operate an ethanol plant near Sioux Center, Iowa.
The ethanol produced from corn is sold for blending with gasoline as an octane enhancer and as a fuel. In 2007 Siouxland Energy completed an expansion project that increased production capacity to 60,000,000 gallons annually.
Within the last couple of years, Siouxland Energy has completed several debottlenecking and carbon intensity projects that allow the production of a low carbon fuel at a production pace of 70,000,000 gallons per year.
