JC Horizon Ltd.

The main product we trade are DDGS (Dried Distiller Grains with Solubles), which are the byproduct of dry-milled ethanol production. It is made from grinding grains, such as corn into a coarse consistency and added to hot water. After cooling, yeast is added and the fermentation process begins for days up to a week. The leftover solid materials remaining are the distiller grains. They are a nutrient rich feed ingredient with energy and protein. It is used mainly as animal forage both in the domestic market and for export abroad.

DDGS Export Market

America is the biggest corn grower in the world, which leaves plenty available for use other than human consumption. We have more than 200 ethanol plants with the capacity to produce more than 14 billion gallons of ethanol, and therefore 30 million tons of DDGS. The DDGS market has been steadily growing as demand has grown, especially in the East. China is now the biggest importer of DDGS and other Asian countries are increasing demand such as South Korea. JC Horizon focuses on this growing region of DDGS importers and we specialize in sourcing quality product in America and selling our customers in China to meet the demand of East Asia.


Hay (not to be confused with straw) is grass or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for grazing livestock such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Hay is typically used as animal fodder when there isn't enough pasture or rangeland on which to graze an animal. Also sometimes grazing can be unavailable due to weather conditions or other factors.

There are many different types of hay, with alfalfa hay being the most popular type. It accounts for about half of all hay grown and exported. Some other popular hays include timothy and sudangrass.

Hay exports

Hay production has been slightly declining since the 1990s, especially during the more recent years due to drought. However, demand steadily increases and the price follows. Still, hay is the third most produced crop in the US.

The traditional markets such as Japan and Korea remain major importers of hay, while the UAE and China are in a quickly growing market in competition for quality hay from the US. The lack of production due to weather or infrastructure in those countries, coupled with the increasing demand of milk products is going to lead to growing demand for US exports in the years to come.


With America's position as a leader in agricultural production of grains and forage and the world's increasing demand to feed its citizens quality food, JC Horizon will continue to explore opportunities to expand in the global trade business of forage and grains. Some products that we may trade include Barley, Sorghum (Milo), and Canola Seed.
