Medemborg loads beet pulp pellets

The Dutch flagged Medemborg will be here today for the sixth time since she was built in 1997. As she did on her one trip here last year, she will be loading beet pulp pellets, brought here by train from North Dakota. Beet pulp pellets, a by-product of sugar beet processing, is used for animal feed in Europe. Picture taken August 25, 2003.
