NEW SALEM (AP) — Farmers have voted to make the New Salem Farmers Union Elevator a part of Southwest Grain, a division of CHS Inc.
According to AP, reports that Southwest Grain plans to build a 1.6 million-bushel terminal at the city west of Bismarck that will be capable of loading 110-car shuttle trains. The existing elevator will be used for specialty crops.
Southwest Grain General Manager Delane Thom says the terminal should be ready for the 2012 harvest. He says it will give Southwest Grain a triangle of shuttle elevators, with others at Gladstone and at Lemmon, S.D. The grain company also has facilities in a dozen other communities.
