Michigan Company Acquires Nebraska Ethanol Plant

Cindy Zimmerman

A subsidiary of Zeeland Farm Services of Michigan recently acquired an idled ethanol plant in Cambridge, Nebraska.

Nebraska Corn Processing (NCP) is the name of the subsidiary that plans to resume production at the plant as quickly as possible this year. The plant was built in 2007 but was idled for much of 2009. “This acquisition will allow NCP to gain a foothold in the energy industry and to further invest in agriculture,” explained Cliff Meeuwsen, company president. “Our goal is to develop viable business opportunities that will benefit NCP, agriculture and the communities in which we reside.”

Zeeland Farm Services is an agricultural and transportation company serving the upper Midwest since 1950. The company’s Grain Division will provide commodity price risk management services to NCP while the Ingredients Division will market the animal feed co‐products that are produced from the plant to the livestock industry.
