Eye on Agriculture: Building Bigger

Posted: Updated:

The energy sector isn't the only economic engine charging forward in North Dakota.

Ag continues to lead the way...and businesses that work with producers need to keep up.

In our Eye on Agriculture today, Perry Olson takes us to a construction site that when finished, will help do exactly that.

(Brad Haugeberg - GM at Sunprairie Grain) "When you are scattered miles apart in different buildings...it becomes difficult sometimes."

And that is the current reality for SunPrairie Grain, and their partners, Dakota Agronomy Partners -- many locations in many different areas...it doesn't make for real efficient work. But that is about to change -- with the construction of this new facility on 13th St. SE just off the 2 and 52 bypass.

(Brad Haugeberg - GM at Sunprairie Grain) "It is going to bring more pieces together so we can be more of a one stop shop for our customers. But also just to create better efficiency within ourselves."

SunPrairie and their partners Dakota Agronomy Partners will be under one roof after the work here is complete...and that means a better operation for the producers who depend on them.

(Terry Herzig - GM at Dakota Agronomy Partners) "One central admin building is the idea with this. A one stop shop in a sense for our producers."

Other sites will remain online...but the administrative wing will be here -- and the hope is producers feel an increased level of service...and maybe a little less road rage too!

(Brad Haugeberg - GM at Sunprairie Grain) "The traffic in Minot as we know is a gong show so we are going to try and be more accessible here and they don't have to go to two or three locations to do their business. They can stop in one spot."

The goal is to be in the building around the end of November. With your Eye on Agriculture, Perry Olson, KX News.
