New Grain Loading Facility in Nebraska

grainA new grain-loading facility will be built near Superior to help Nebraska farmers get their crops to market quickly.

The new project will have a storage capacity of 1.25 million bushels and enough railroad track to handle loading a 120-car train.

The Aurora Cooperative and CHS Inc. announced the project on Thursday. The grain-loading facility is expected to be completed around this time next year.

The new facility will also have a 10,000-ton storage tank for liquid fertilizer and space for a ground piling system for grain.

Aurora Co-op president and CEO George Hohwieler says this project will help farmers in Nebraska and Kansas access global markets.
