co-ops, grain elevator, farm cooperatives
Four local cooperatives have agreed to purchase the elevator at Wentworth, South Dakota, and form a federated cooperative at Wentworth. The Wentworth facility consists of two separate elevators. The main elevator is located on the former Milwaukee Road branchline from Sioux Falls Junction to Madison. The elevator and two annexes have a capacity of approximately 120,000 bushels. A warehouse and frame quonset add approximately 150,000 bushels of storage capacity. A separate office building and truck scale are at the site. The west elevator is a smaller facility with about 53,000 bushels of storage capacity. It is located threeblockswest of the main elevator on the Burlington Northern branchline.
