The NEW Cooperative Glidden location begins this month a project that will expand its grain facilities to better serve area farmers. The ability to provide the necessary grain services for today's farmer is an ever changing task. With increasing yields and larger equipment, facilities must be prepared to meet these increasing needs. NEW Cooperative, a Fort Dodge based, farmer owned cooperative, has taken the needed steps to prepare their facilities for local farmers' needs today and in the future. After adding over 4 million bushels of storage and increased receiving capacities in 2011, NEW Cooperative is proud to announce that 2012 additions have begun and are taking place in Glidden.
Beginning in late December and continuing through the beginning months of 2012, demolition of the old concrete grain storage and a few additional buildings will take place at the NEW Cooperative Glidden location. Following the demolition of these structures, construction of new grain storage will begin. This will include two 85 foot steel grain bins, which will store a combined 720,000 bushels. In addition to the new grain bins, installation of a new receiving pit and leg will also take place which will greatly increase grain receiving capacities. These additions and improvements being made to the NEW Cooperative Glidden location will be a great value for local farmers as their ability to haul increased yields with larger equipment continues to grow and the need for a quick return to the field during harvest becomes necessary.
