    This is a great example of several units of government and the private sector combining resources to create a shipping opportunity what will boost Milwaukee, ethanol producers and Midwest famers. Such a collaboration is beyond the thought process of the Luddite Republican legislators who infest our Madison political process. Their idea of political process which they sell to their constituency is promoting the culture wars while their voters live off farm subsidies, Medicare, and Foodstamps.

    Great news! Milwaukee benefits from having a working port…the more work, the better!

    This design locks in wasted time, energy and money.
    The tower for intake, storage and retrieval should have been built in the middle of 2 separate buildings. That would have cut the storage/retrieval time and distance by nearly half per cycle. Split infrastructures would spread wear and tear on equipment, and avoid total shutdown if a problem or breakdown would occur.

    The center location would have involved slightly more construction and expense to make it (laterally) bidirectional , but this would’ve been amortized quickly.

    DDGS production will eventually wane as energy production shifts sources, but the need for new grain types and sources to survive changing climates is likely to more than make up for it.

    This facility’s wide intake reach by rail and it’s even wider export range through the port bode well for its success.
