A new soy crushing facility in northwest Minnesota should be processing soybeans in less than two months.
Ag Innovation Campus CEO Tom Slunecka says the plant in Crookston is on track to open in June.
“You know it’s amazing to see how fast this project has come together, really four and a half years from conception to build out. That’s record time, especially in Minnesota. So we couldn’t be more proud, the contractors have been great, the city has been great.”
Speaking to Brownfield during the AURI New Uses Forum earlier this week, he said once the Ag Innovation Campus is fully operational it will crush more than 60,000 tons of soybean meal a year, equating to about 2.5 million bushels.
