Columbia Grain International acquired the Grafton Farmers Co-op Grain Company in Grafton, North Dakota. “We look at this as a very lucrative position to be in because it really accents our business operation at Crystal and Minto where we were already operating,” says Jeff Van Pevenage, CEO, Columbia Grain. “It gives us the ability to give us a dry bean handling facility there and yellow peas. It’s a good station to feed soybeans and corn up towards Crystal and wheat into the mill markets.” According to Van Pevenage, the Grafton facility’s biggest advantage is its ability to take in a diverse crop mix.
