The new canola crushing facility at Hallock, Minnesota is up and running.
"We're pleased to report the entire plant, including the refinery, is up to speed," says Neil Juhnke, President and Chief Operating Officer with Northstar Agri Industries. "Right now we're operating at about 80 percent of our ultimate designed capacity. We expect to get to full capacity within the next few weeks. It's only a matter of optimizing and de-bugging a brand new plant."
The plant is capable of crushing approximately a thousand U.S. tons of canola per day, or 345 thousand tons per year.
He says they're looking to southern Manitoba for a significant portion of their supply.
"We expect at least 40 percent of it will come out of Canada in the next two to three years. We do hope that Minnesota acreage will rebound in the two to three, maybe five year time horizon, back up to that 200 thousand acre level, but even then, we still expect at least 100 thousand tons will come out of Canada," says Juhnke.
Hallock is roughly 35 kilometres (or around 23 miles) southeast of Emerson.
