**Weekly Wrap Up:
Spot market ethanol trades this week were lower with very light demand. As
refiners on the East coast recover from Hurricane Sandy, it is much more
economical to utilize imported ethanol than domestic product that must be
transported out of the Midwest. 

Bio-Energy Report Notes:
Protein content 28-30% for most distiller grains on a dry matter basis.
Modified Wet Distillers Grain is a partially dried product. Wet Distillers
Grain is a a non-dried product.
