Sidney Sugars Inc. completed slicing earlier this week and campaign should be done by the end of the week. General manager Dave Garland said it was a good year. The factory finished up slicing the beets they had over ventilation which was noticeable to the process. The factory finished beets from the Fairview pile grounds last Wednesday and ended slice from the ventilated pile at the factory yard.

The factory sliced 984,000+ tons of beets and produced 264+ million pounds of sugar. 32,637 acres of beets were harvested with an average tonnage of 31.22 and 17.89 sugar.

Garland praised all the employees saying they did really well, especially late in campaign when the factory was short staffed and faced with extremely low temperatures.

Capital projects and maintenance will begin immediately after campaign, getting everything ready for campaign next fall, and sugar shipments continue year round.
