SUMNER COUNTY TERMINAL

Partners You Can Count On

Grain
Producer Ag LLC, a joint venture between CHS and Team Marketing Alliance, opened in May 2017. This rail loading terminal is located at Milan, KS, with 2.7 million bushels of upright slipform concrete storage at right and a 4.5-million-bushel flat storage building. The terminal is under the operation of MKC. The terminal accepts canola, wheat, corn and soybeans.

To maximize grain volume, especially during the busiest times like wheat harvest and fall crop harvest, Producer Ag routes incoming and outcoming trucks into two lanes of traffic, with equipment to match. Trucks are sampled with a pair of side-by-side probes, and processed using RFID tag readers for truck identification.

An entire team is at the location to set-up accounts, sell grain, dump trucks and more.

Our Strategy and Implementation

 

The terminal is owned by Producer Ag, a 50/50 joint venture between CHS and MKC.

The facility has nearly 7 million bushels of storage composed of multiple different types of storage. Storage types include slip form and flat storage. The facility is designed to receive grain at up to 100,000 bushels per hour during harvest and load up to 80,000 bushels per hour onto the rail.

The location in Sumner County quickly stood out as an excellent area when considering the number of acres in crop production, type of acres planted, grains produced, end users for bushels produced, and the future potential for production. MKC and CHS conducted multiple studies looking at grain producing areas in the state of Kansas and have clearly identified areas that are underserved by cooperatively owned rail terminals.

This project is directly in-line with the vision of MKC to provide market relevance, current assets and excellent customer service.
