Dsquery command will do this for you perfectly

Put all the server in a text file and parse this to dsquery command.

Can you help with the syntax, I'm not familiar with dsquery, mostly use PS
I'd just look at the distinguishedName, as that shows the OU.  If you absolutely need just the OU then you'd want to parse the DN to strip off the computer name.
