Central Valley Ag (CVA) has begun work on a new grain shuttle facility and agronomy plant located at the Courtland Hub in North Central Kansas.
With an expected completion date in summer 2025, the Courtland Hub facility will provide a high-speed shuttle loader on a loop track with access to BNSF Railroad and onsite storage of approximately 5.5 million bushels.
The agronomy plant is expected to be completed in spring 2025 and house a 3.5-million-gallon liquid fertilizer plant with a chemical and seed warehouse. This liquid fertilizer plant will have the ability to receive tons by rail or truck.
The groundbreaking on November 10 featured state, county and city representatives, CVA and AgMark employees, CVA member-owners, and members of the CVA board of directors present to celebrate the new facility.
“As the CVA board of directors, we are continuously looking for ways to bring value to our member-owners and our cooperative to serve the farmers of today and tomorrow," said Luke Carlson, CVA board chairman. "The addition of the Courtland Hub Facility will do just that,. This facility will allow us to access the best markets for grain and enhance our supply chain on liquid fertilizer to meet our member-owners’ needs.”
Central Valley Ag is a farmer-owned cooperative with locations in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska providing products and services in grain, agronomy, feed and energy.
