1 Million Bags and Counting for Wyoming Sugar Company
Written by jordanmckamey on February 4, 2019
Wyoming Sugar announced this week that they have produced over 1 million bags of sugar this campaign — a feat that hasn’t been eclipsed since the year 2000 — when Wyoming Sugar was owned by Imperial. Thousands of more bags are still on the way.
The Northern Wyoming News reports CEO Mike Greear credited the feat to the growers and employees of Wyoming Sugar, stating, quote, “My hats off to our growers and to our employees. The growers brought in a helluva crop with a high sugar content and our employees have done a wonderful job of getting it into the bins for us,” end quote.
The sugar content of the sugar beets this year was just above 19 percent for company average and just under 33.5 tons harvested per acre.
