In 2007, Jerry Bryson sold 50 acres of land in Herman, Minnesota to CHS.
Today, this land is home to a new, state of the art elevator complex, which began receiving grain October 13, 2020. In the photo gallery below, Bryson is pictured delivering the first load of grain into the new elevator. This is Bryson’s last harvest, as he plans to retire from farming after this fall.
The new elevator complex has an RFID card reader system for swift delivery and includes three 25,000 bushel/hour receiving pits. At 132 feet tall, 8 main silos along with additional smaller bins offer 1.45 million bushels of upright storage space.
Area farmers have already begun delivering to the new elevator. Take a quick watch of this video taken during construction, which gives an idea of the traffic pattern new grain deliveries will be taking to enter the elevator.
Please contact a member of our grain team with any delivery questions regarding the new elevator through harvest.
