09.30 Buffalo Lake Grain Facility Repairs Update

Sep 30, 2022

September 30, 2022
Central Region Cooperative will be continuing to repair the Buffalo Lake facility throughout the harvest season. The May 12th storms that went through our area destroyed our wet, dry legs and several overhead conveyors and the electrical control room at the west silos location.  All the new equipment is onsite and contractors will be onsite throughout harvest finishing repairs. There will be a lot of construction and electrician crew members on site so we ask for your cooperation as they do their jobs. Everyone’s safety is our main concern. Please slow down and be aware of your surroundings when you drive through the facility. We will continue to update you on any changes.

  • We are currently taking beans at the west silos site.
  • Wet beans will need to go to the east house.
  • The scale operators will direct you where to go.
  • We will be taking dry corn to the east house until repairs are completed.
  • We may take corn up to 18% moisture at Buffalo Lake. Please call before delivery.
  • We will be taking wet corn, over 18% moisture, at the Hector or Fairfax locations until the dryer conveyors are completed.
  • The price differential between Hector and Buffalo Lake will be removed until repairs are completed.
  • We will update you as to when we will be able to receive wet corn, over 18%, in Buffalo Lake.
  • We are estimating the operational date for receiving wet corn in Buffalo Lake to be around October 20th. Hopefully sooner. I will keep you updated.
Please call with any questions or concerns.
