LUVERNE, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota animal feed ingredient manufacturer is expanding to South Dakota.

Great Plains Processing, based in Luverne, says it’s setting up operations in Yankton, South Dakota where it’s purchased a building and nearly 20 acres of land. Great Plains Processing is a custom spray drying and animal feed ingredient manufacturer.

GPP President Quintin Honerman says state and local officials helped make expansion plans seamless.

The 40,000 square-foot facility in Yankton will initially create 20 full-time jobs with the potential of doubling employment in three to five years.

GPP products can be found in feeds for many species, including bovine, equine, swine and domesticated pets.
