Submitted to Sumner Newscow — CHS Inc., an energy, grains and food company and the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative, and MKC, a full-service farm cooperative offering a complete line of products, programs and services throughout Kansas, are considering plans to build and operate a grain terminal in Milan, Kan.
If approved, site preparation would begin in early 2016. Located in Sumner County, the facility will include a high-speed shuttle loader with access to the BNSF line. Upon completion, on-site storage will be approximately 7 million bushels.
“This project is part of our continued commitment to meet the needs of producers and to sustain the cooperative model for future generations,” said Dave Christiansen, president and CEO. “The addition of speed and space with access to world markets will bring value to the local producers in the region and allow other cooperatives in the area access to markets through a cooperative partner.”
