North Dakota Soybean Processors hosted town hall meetings in Casselton to discuss the proposed crush plant, scheduled to break ground this spring. Minnesota Soybean Processors Senior Advisor Scott White says the plant will add value to a farmer’s bottom line. “I’ve seen outside studies that say with two dedicated soybean processing plants in the state, on average, basis will improve by five to ten cents a bushel.” White says there are misconceptions of soybean processing plants. “We don’t have dedicated soybean processing plants in the state so they’re not well-known. Characteristics of other grain processing facilities may be applied to soybean processing plants, but they have very different odor and sound characteristics.”
