Business Expansion: Du Mond Grain, a subsidiary of the 5,000-acre farming operation Du Mond Ag, LLC, will expand into the soymeal market by building a non-solvent soybean processing plant, bringing locally-grown product from seed to feed for livestock. The project will construct and equip a new facility, with soymeal extruding and oil pressing equipment, silos for storage, and a barn. This business expansion will allow NY soybean farmers to have their soybeans processed in NY State and NY livestock farmers (primarily dairy and swine) to buy NY grown and extruded non-solvent soymeal for their livestock.
CEDA assisted with the development of the business plan for their new operation and provided guidance with the Consolidated Funding Application process. CEDA continues to connect DuMond Grain with other development opportunities and will assist with local incentives as the project progresses.
