IMPROVEMENTS FOR FALL 2023
At the Long Point facility we have added a new 25,000 bph wet leg and dump pit along with a 54 foot diameter wet tank (holds 200,000 bu of corn). We are also adding a 4700 bph grain dryer with a 6,000 bph dry leg. This project will significantly improve our ability to handle wet corn during harvest.
In Blackstone we have added a new 78 foot diameter corn bin with a capacity of 425,000 bushels. This will help to reduce the amount of corn that has to be hauled away during harvest.
We have also added a 54 foot diameter wet tank at RuffRail with a capacity of 175,000 bushels. This bin will help us handle wet corn during harvest and will give us more flexibility when loading trains after harvest.
A 4700 bph Zimmerman grain dryer has been installed at the Garfield loacation to improve our drying capacity.
These improvements are part of our long-term plan to provide grain facilities that can handle the ever-increasing harvesting speed and grain volume during the harvest season.
FALL HAULING SERVICES
We will be offering our fall trucking services this season at a rate of 14 cents per bushel on grain hauled into the closest of our facilities. We ask that you have an auger wagon or another method for loading the trucks quickly. As usual, we will schedule jobs only as the trucks become available. If trucks are not available, you will have to wait until they become available. If you are interested in using this service, please give us as much notice as possible before you are ready to haul.
