South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard aids in the ribbon cutting at Anderson Seed Company in Redfield Thursday

Minnesota-based Anderson Seed Company held a ribbon cutting ceremony at their plant near Redfield on Thursday.  Ron Anderson, owner of Anderson Seed Company said that they picked Redfield as a location since they were buying a large amount of product from the area.  Instead of paying to move the seeds, he said it made sense to build a plant near the product instead.  Originally the plant was only going to employ one person; however,  Anderson says they’ll have more…


Anderson explains what the sunflower seeds will go through…


Governor Dennis Daugaard was on hand for the occasion and he said that this is the type of business that our state needs to keep bringing in…


The $3 million project was partially financed with a REDI Fund loan and the pooled-bond program, administered through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
