ALCIVIA breaks ground on Hager City, Wisconsin, grain terminal

With extensive Class I railway access, the terminal is poised to significantly enhance grain storage and transportation capabilities in the region.

Alcivia's Board Of Directors

ALCIVIA’s Board of Directors initiated the construction of a new high-tech rail loading grain terminal in Hager City, Wisconsin. The groundbreaking ceremony saw participation from key project vendors, partners, and ALCIVIA’s leadership team.

Set on a 40-acre site featuring over 21,000 linear feet of Class I BNSF railway track, the facility is designed to enhance grain terminal services for agricultural producers in west central Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota. This strategic location will further strengthen ALCIVIA’s logistics network, providing crucial links to major transport routes and markets.

The facility plans to boast upright grain storage capacity for 3.9 million bushels, supported by two grain dryers each with a 4,700-bushel per hour capacity, and three dump pits capable of handling 1,500 bushels each. These facilities are engineered to process a combined 60,000 bushels of grain per hour.

Once operational, ALCIVIA will expand its shuttle loading operations across three major Class I railroads—BNSF, Union Pacific and CPKC. This expansion also includes access to key navigational routes via the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers and essential connections to domestic corn ethanol and soybean crush plants, positioning ALCIVIA favorably in both domestic and international markets.

Jim Dell, ALCIVIA's CEO and President, expressed enthusiasm about the project's potential. “This project will give us a lot of flexibility for our members, our customers, and our trade territory. We are really looking forward to working with the railroad and the community to build this site into something special,” he said.

The project is slated for completion in March 2025.
