New oilseed crush plant project will break ground next week

The CEO of the South Dakota Soybean Processors says construction of a new oilseed crush plant near Mitchell is expected to begin later this fall.

Tom Kersting tells Brownfield a groundbreaking event is scheduled for Tuesday and another permit is needed before anything is built.

“After we get the permit, we can start pouring the foundational type structures and next summer is when you’ll start seeing things come out of the ground.”

Once completed, the Mitchell plant will have the capacity to crush 100,000 bushels a day.
