A payloader scoops “pressed” beet pulp into a truck at the American Crystal Sugar Co. beet processing plant on the north side of Moorhead, Minn., on Jan. 26, 2014. Normally, pulp would be dried and pelletized for shipment to customers on four continents, but natural gas rationing because of a pipeline explosion in Canada has created rationing that has preference for residential heating customers. One smokestack continues to operate as the company dries some pulp using methane byproduct from its wastewater treatment system. Photo taken Jan. 26, 2013. (Forum News Service/Agweek/Mikkel Pates)
