Not Hurt By Rail Backlog, So Far
Tue, 22 Apr 2014

CHS Ag Services Sales agronomist Dave Ness, who works in the Larimore, North Dakota area, says so far the railroad backlog hasn’t hurt their fertilizer supply. “We did have some pretty decent news with the Surface Transportation Board putting the spurs to the railroad to get this fertilizer hauled. That’s going to be a major benefit to us when we start rolling. Our Warren plant is our central location and that all comes in by rail. Then we disperse it out. All of our supply at Larimore comes in by truck.”

It’s going to increase our efficiency greatly.” See pictures from the open house on RRFN’s Facebook page.

Tue, 22 Apr 2014

Efforts are being made to deal with rail service delays, but grain elevators have a big hurdle to cross on this issue. Oahe Grain general manager Tim Luken, who is based in Onida, South Dakota, sees the problem dragging beyond harvest. “There’s a lot of grain on farms that has to be moved to town yet. I’m 510 cars behind. I’ll never get this cleaned out before harvest gets here in July.” Oahe Grain is now served by the Canadian Pacific. As of June 1, a short-line railway known as the Rapid City-Pierre and Eastern, will take over.
