I am always amazed at what can be accomplished by a group of dedicated people working together. Our employee team has been hard at work on seven major construction projects that are either nearing completion, underway, or at the early stages of construction. Recently, the final piece of the new Rowan facility was By Dan Dix just completed with the addition of a UAN storage and bulk chemical facility, which is now ready for use this spring. This brings to an end the construction of NEW’s first green-field site, including both grain and complete agronomic facilities. This project took eighteen months to complete from start to finish. It is a great addition to the Dows and Rowan locations’ customer base. Support has been outstanding and we look forward to this facility serving area members for years to come. The new liquid terminal at Roelyn is nearing completion, and the dry terminal that is currently underway, is not far behind with a completion date later this summer. These two projects will allow NEW to service a larger geographic area out of one facility, as well as provide us more options for purchasing product. Another benefit from these facilities has been the opportunity to establish warehouse agreements with various fertilizer producers. In Pomeroy, construction of a new feed pelleting mill, (our 5th mill), continues on schedule with a completion date this coming winter. This mill will utilize much of the corn that originates in the Palmer, Knoke, and Pomeroy trade territories, and will serve as a new market for our members’ grain. Three other projects are slated to begin this spring, with late summer completion dates expected. In Washta, an additional 500,000 bushels of grain storage and increased grain receiving capacities will be a much-needed addition, and will dramatically improve grain delivery speeds throughout this facility. In Lidderdale, a new dryer will be added this year to guarantee a consistent flow of quality corn to our pellet mill, which today utilizes much of the grain delivered to our facilities in that area. Finally, in Cooper, plans are to build a dry fertilizer satellite plant similar to the one built in Rowan this past summer. This plant will be supplied by the Roelyn fertilizer terminal, and will allow our new customer base in the area to have a readily available source of dry fertilizer. It will also act as a distribution point for our custom application business in the area. Between all of these construction projects, our dedicated team of employees also accomplishes constant fertilizer and grain movement, field ...continued on back cover YOUR PARTNER IN THE FIELD
