Premier Cooperative has announced

some major changes at its’ grain facilities

in Mineral Point and Westby.

According to the Premier Co-op

newsletter, site work is underway at

Mineral Point for the addition of another

750,000 bushel corn bin, and a 250,000

bushel soybean bin. Another scale with

a receiving pit and leg will also be added

to double the receiving speed.

Premier General Manager Andy Fiene

says the Mineral Point project is

being done to take the pressure off

of the Richland Center and Mazomanie

grain plants, so more grain can be

routed directly to the Point location

during the harvest rush.

At Westby, a new 72,000 bushel soybean

bin, tower, and receiving leg will triple

Premier’s unloading speed at the plant.
