CHS pursues Wisconsin soybean processing plant


The President of the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board is optimistic and excited about a possible soybean crushing facility near Evansville, Wisconsin.

Clinton farmer Patrick Mullooly tells Brownfield it’s early in the process for CHS, as the cooperative moves forward with plans to build a food-grade soybean oil and soybean meal production site. “I know they’re working on their air permits with the DNR and the state. I think what they stated is it would be several months here of a process to get to where they could go to their board and vote on approval.”

Mullooly says their own feasibility study shows an Evansville location would serve soybean farmers well.
