There are 1 million more bushels of grain storage available at Kanza Co-op, thanks to a major building project at our Stafford location this spring and summer.
We’ve added two new 500,000-bushel steel bins, along with a new 15,000-bushel-per-hour grain leg. The bins are an expansion of the existing grain-handling system at Stafford and will provide additional storage for wheat and corn.
“With three years of bumper crops and having to pile grain on the ground, we knew it was time to expand our grain facilities,” says Jim Bob Lewton, chief grain operations officer for Kanza. “The new grain system at Stafford will be ready to handle the fall harvest.”
Kanza continues to upgrade our grain facilities to keep pace with changes in the grain sector. “We try to invest in a grain project every year, so we can serve local farmers as efficiently as possible,” Lewton says.
