Britton Grain Terminal Running Ahead of Schedule!
Wheaton-Dumont Coop Elevator is pleased to announce that construction on the Britton Grain Terminal is ahead of schedule and we will be ready to receive grain sometime before harvest!
The Terminal, located one mile south of Britton on SD Highway 27, is truly state-of-the-art. The Terminal is built with both speed and space, ensuring that wait times are held to an absolute minimum. As inbound trucks enter from the highway, they are sampled by probe on the inbound scale. Card readers and display monitors throughout the site will control the flow of grain and data and provide that same information to the truck operator. Trucks will then be routed to one of three enclosed, 1,400 bushel receiving pits. Covered and automated inbound and outbound scales ensure accuracy and speed no matter what the weather is doing. Two, 5,000 bushel per hour dryers are set up to allow drying two different commodities at the same time. The facility will have a licensed capacity of more than 4.5 million bushels of upright storage and 2.5 million bushels of temporary storage. In total, the new facility will be capable of receiving grain at 60,000 bushels per hour and loading 120-car shuttle trains at 80,000 bushels per hour.
Loading grain shuttles on site will significantly reduce your cost of freight and will improve grain bids to the country. The facility will provide an immediate economic boost to the area!
Stay tuned as we anticipate holding an Open House and Grand Opening Ceremony early this summer!
