Giant Ground Pile Meets Idaho Facility Demand

Million-bushel pile at Columbia Grain International facility in Fenn is approximately 50 feet high

With bigger harvests, and more coming to the elevators on each grain truck, a million-bushel ground pile at the Columbia Grain International facility at Fenn, ID, was what was needed to keep up with supply, as well as demands, reports the Idaho County Free Press.

The project was started a year ago, and the asphalt put down the first of August -– a week before the region’s harvest began, said Brandon Rehder, manager for CGI’s South Camas Prairie area (Grangeville, Cottonwood, Big Butte and Fenn).

The 57,300-square-foot pile is approximately 50 feet tall, and is served by a 20,000-bushel-an-hour rated conveyor belt that can unload a 1,000-bushel grain truck in four minutes.
