New Oat Plant Completed in Yankton, SD

Yaggies new $3.5 million plant would double processing capacity

Oats 701299 1280

From an elevator to an oat processing plant, Yaggies Inc., Yankton, SD, has seen a lot of change since the late 1960s, reorts the Sioux City Journal.

Yaggies recently finished construction of a $3.5 million oat processing plant would allow it to double processing capacity while updating its equipment.

The oat industry, much like the pork industry in the Yankton area, has exploded over the last five years, and the growth has led to an increased need for cleaner, safer oat groat production.

The decision to move oats out of the current facility instead of moving the feed mill boiled down to the fact that the oat side of the plant was far more dated than the feed mill.
