Scoular has purchased a grain handling and processing facility near Goodland, KS, to deliver speed and space to area farmers.

The facility, located five miles west of Goodland in northwestern Kansas, is currently operating.

It has a capacity of more than 5.5 million bushels and is capable of loading and unloading trucks, as well as railcars.

The facility complements the nearby Scoular grain handling facility in the town of Goodland. It also enhances Scoular’s network throughout western Kansas and its ability to bring valued, grower-produced products to animal feeding, ethanol producers, flour millers and export customers throughout its supply chain.

“Our new facility gives farmers in western Kansas an efficient place to offload grain, saving them time and money,” says Jeff Bhend, a Scoular manager who oversees both Scoular facilities.

“We purchased this facility with our farmers in mind and are proud we can serve them even better, especially during the busy harvest time.”

The facility had been operating as a canola and sunflower crush plant. Under Scoular’s ownership, the facility is handling corn, wheat and milo. Scoular plans to upgrade the facility by increasing dumping speeds and improving truck traffic flow and to hire additional employees.

A 128-year-old company with $6 billion in sales, Scoular creates safe and reliable supply chain solutions for end-users and suppliers of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients.
