The North Dakota Mill is celebrating its 100th anniversary. According to North Dakota Mill Manager Vance Taylor, the facility continues to grow. “We just finished an expansion early in this calendar year that added another 11,000 hundredweights of capacity or 1.1 million pounds per day and that takes us to a total of six million pounds of finished product per day,” explains Vance Taylor, president/general manager, “It’s kind of fun to say that we’re the largest single-site mill in the United States and the 8th largest milling company overall.” The spring wheat and durum coming into the mill is described as above average. “We’ve got a really great wheat crop to work with, we’re averaging 63 pounds test weight on this new crop here which is amazing.” The North Dakota Mill reports first quarter profits of $2.3 million. That’s down from $3.3 million one year ago.
