Prairie Packing to Begin International Exports Under New Ownership From Yellowstone River Beef

Williston is diving into the international beef export market, but will still provide services to the local community and surrounding areas.

As reported by the Williston Herald on Thursday, Aug. 15, Oregon-based Yellowstone River Beef is working towards purchasing Prairie Packing and upgrading it into a facility for the international export of beef to Asian markets. At The Tuesday, Aug. 13, meeting of the Williston City Commission, the commissioners voted to approve up to $72,000 for a Flex PACE buydown grant from the city’s STAR Fund.

The buydown program helps lower the interest on the company’s commercial loan, and includes a 2-to-1 matching grant from the Bank of North Dakota.
