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.
