Ruthven Project Complete

Open House June 27th

The upgrades that have been ongoing at our Ruthven facility are now complete. The old wood house has been completely torn down, increasing staging space and improving traffic flow. We have increased leg capacity by 10k bushels, to 30k bushels per hour. The pit upgrades will allow us to dump two hoppers at once, and a new PLC system will automate most of the grain handling process. Along with the elevator upgrades, a new office and scale were built west of the old structures.

Please join us at our open house on June 27th to meet Ruthven’s staff, get a tour of the upgrades, and to enjoy lunch. We look forward to seeing you there!
