IMPROVEMENTS FOR FALL 2019
At the Budd facility we have removed three of the old flat storage buildings and replaced them with a new 105’ diameter tank with a capacity of 788,000 bushels of corn.
In Blackstone we have added a new 60’ diameter soybean tank with a capacity of 218,000 bushels.  This bin will give us more capacity to handle the soybean harvest and will allow us to improve our container loading efficiency throughout the year.
We have built a new 54’ diameter soybean tank with a capacity of 186,000 bushels in Gridley to help ease the pressure during harvest.
At Wenona we have added a 12,500 bph grain leg and dump pit on the east side of the concrete elevator which will allow us to dump corn and soybeans at the same time more easily.
 
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 10 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.
