Location Manager Ben Hetzel and Regional Manager Delane Thom tell KBJM radio that work has begun on a new grain cleaning and handling facility and concrete upright grain storage bins. Taylor, North Dakota-based Southwest Grain held an open house this week to show off its new office complex.

Officials say the project will enhance grain cleaning and handling and will allow the co-op to hold about 210,000 bushels of grain at the Lemmon site. The operation has grown to 27 fulltime employees.

Work is projected to be completed by the summer of 2015.

Southwest Grain, a division of CHS Inc., has 16 locations in North Dakota and South Dakota.
