South Dakota Corn is excited about the new dairy processing facility coming to Brookings, South Dakota. What a great addition to the city, state and ag community. South Dakota State is home to one of two dairy manufacturing education opportunities in the nation and many say it could be the best. What a great opportunity for SDSU students who not only will have a state-of-the-art learning facility, but also a brand new industrial plant to learn and excel on a professional level.
This news is not only great for students, but also our dairymen and farmers providing milk and feed to make it all possible.
Each dairy cow has an estimated $14,000 ripple effect on the state’s economy. Ag’s overall impact on the state is around $22 billion as it continues to be South Dakota’s number one industry.
