CHS, Mid-Kansas Cooperative to build UP-served grain loading facility

Union Pacific Railroad
Energy grains and foods company CHS Inc. and Mid-Kansas Cooperative recently agreed to form a limited liability company to build and operate a high-speed shuttle loading facility in Canton, Kan., that would be served by Union Pacific Railroad.

Construction is expected to begin in spring and conclude in about 12 months. Located on a UP line, the grain shuttle will be designed to load 110-car trains bound for export facilities in the Pacific Northwest, Gulf Coast and Mexico. The facility will feature on-site storage capabilities to accommodate more than 3 million bushels of grain.

The newly formed limited liability company will become a member of Team Marketing Alliance (TMA), which will handle grain marketing services for the Canton facility. TMA is a limited liability company owned by four central Kansas cooperatives that operate 48 bulk grain elevators.
