First Shuttle train loaded at CHS Mahnomen

On July 31st we loaded our first full shuttle at CHS Mahnomen.

After many delays, CHS Mahnomen has loaded our first few trains out of the newly expanded Mahnomen shuttle loader. 

The initial trains sent out using our new setup were loaded with less startup problems than anticipated. This can be attributed to using experienced contractors and the great group of people who operate the elevator in Mahnomen. 

The crew, led by location manager Justin Haus, have done a fantastic job learning the proper flow to get trains loaded quickly and safely. We are excited to be able to stay in the community and serve the CHS farmer owners for years into the future!
