SweetPro Feeds plans to stay in Walhalla for the long run

Published 02/11/2012, Grand Forks Herald

Whether or not Walhalla’s ethanol plant, which Archer Daniels Midland Co. announced this past week would close in early April, ever reopens, the ethanol industry will leave a legacy in the community.
