 Cargill formed the joint venture with Concord Grain LLC, solely owned by farmer Todd Ochsner, to run a newly built elevator that can load 110-rail car shuttle trains in the state which ranks No. 6 in growing corn and No. 8 in soybeans. The joint venture in Aberdeen, in the northeast part of the state, will expand Cargill’s reach in a region that has increased its production of corn and soybeans in recent years. The market helps feed export facilities in the Pacific Northwest, primarily shipping to customers in Asia.
