Progress continues on the new soybean crush facility at Casselton, North Dakota. North Dakota Soybean Processors Commercial Manager Bill McBee says marketing byproducts will be important. “Out of a bushel of soybeans, 20 percent of it is oil so 80 percent of it is soybean meal and soy hull pellets,” said McBee. “We have to find a market for those by-products as well.” What’s not sold in North Dakota will be sent to Minnesota, Canada, or exported through the Pacific Northwest. Construction remains on schedule. NDSP expects to begin crushing beans in August 2024.
