CASSELTON, N.D. (KVRR) — State leaders like Gov. Doug Burgum, Sen. John Hoeven and Sen. Kevin Cramer came to Central Cass High School to celebrate after they and other project leaders break ground of a soybean plant near the school.
Both the North Dakota and Minnesota Soybean Processors teams are behind the project which they say will have a positive impact for local farmers who have to deal with rising soybean prices.
“It’s a good day because, what happens with this processing plant, once we get it up and running, we will be a 12-month a year buyer of soybeans. The farmers of this area won’t have to rely only on exports. We will be buying soybeans and it should increase the value of the soybeans and the value of all products here in this area,” North Dakota Soybean Processors President Steve O’Nan said.
