[HASTINGS, NE March 21, 2023] — Cooperative Producers, Inc. (CPI) has named the previously announced 5-million-bushel grain facility being built in Clay County, Lewis. The new location is being constructed in the Lewis Township, one mile north of the Highway 6 and 14 northbound intersection between Harvard and Saronville.
CPI’s next steps include doing soil boring tests, finalizing engineering, and working with the Nebraska Department of Transportation on a driveway and traffic analysis. Plans are to break ground mid-spring with the intention to have the building ready for fall harvest. CPI also has backup plans in case there are delays.
Further details will be available as the project progresses.
