Commission discusses egg-factory, zoning
County Commissioner Joe Jensen of Arlington said Tuesday he has heard a lot of excitement in Arlington about the possibility of Lake Preston getting an egg-processing plant
Rembrandt Foods, Inc. is considering a location for a new facility in Minnesota, Iowa or Lake Preston. The long-range plan would eventually include more than five million laying hens.
“It would have a huge economic impact on the whole county, not just Lake Preston,” Jensen said.
“Are we still pretty much front and center?” commissioner Roger Lee asked.
Jensen said the chief executive officer of Rembrandt was recently in Lake Preston touring the proposed site along with Lucas Lynch, the South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture.
