To all Shareholders,

This isn't going to be a long winded explanation of how we did it, but at the same time, it is worthy of note and all LSCP employee's should be recognized for their fine work this past 3 months.   Some of you may know that LSCP participates in a benchmarking program that is administered by Christianson and Associates, which is our accounting firm.   LSCP had the best ethanol yield for the last 3 months recorded by the 13 Iowa Fagen built plants @ 2.9433 gallons per bushel processed.   The average for the 13 Iowa plants was 2.8497.   LSCP exceeded the average by .0936 gallons per bushel which is truly noteworthy.   We also had very good distillers corn oil extraction results @.9019 # per bushel compared to the Iowa Fagen plants average (.6398#/bushel).

The plant also did well when compared to the 42 plants in the nationwide comparison.   We were second in the ethanol yield per bushel category and second on corn oil production/bushel.

Bragging is not my best trait.  I don't do well at all with taking credit.  I did do my part but when you see an employee of LSCP please give them a thumbs up or a fist bump for a job very well done!!
