The Green Bison soybean crush facility held its official ribbon cutting last week in Spiritwood, North Dakota. The plant started receiving soybeans September 18th. Green Bison President Mike Keller said the plant is not quite at full capacity. “Our capacity is 150,000 bushels of soybeans a day. We’re currently not at full capacity, but we do have storage on site that handles more than our capacity.” Keller says the plant produces soy oil, a soybean hull pellet, and soybean meal. “The soybean pellet will be used more so locally, just because it’s a smaller percentage of our overall product while the meal will be broader in reach.”
