The new soybean crush plant at Spiritwood will begin processing soybeans on Wednesday. Kristi Van Ahn, who is with Van Ahn and Company, was part of a market outlook panel discussion at the Big Iron Farm Show. Van Ahn said the Green Bison Soy Processing project will provide more competition for soybeans. “If there’s a cush facility that wants to utilize one-third of every bean grown in North Dakota, your elevators are going to have to try a little bit harder to get those beans that go to the PNW.” In the short-term, Van Ahn said the soybean meal produced at Green Bison can be exported or shipped to areas with more swine production.
