About our location

The MFA Rail Facility is a loop loader project on the UP railroad designed to load a complete 110 rail car train in less than 8 hours. The facility is designed to move grain rather than store it, however the facility does have over 3.5 million storage on site.   There are 3 concrete bins that are 80' x 132' which will hold 566,000 bushels each.  There is also 1 concrete bin that is 60' x 132' that will hold 316,000 bushels.  There will be 3 metal bins, each with 30,000 bushel capacity.  We will also have 1 Zimmerman dryer and 2 overhead bins with 5,000 bushel capacity each.  The location will have 1 center-fill ground pile that will hold 1.5 million bushels and reclaim back into the elevator for load out.  There are 2 receiving legs, each rated at 30,000 bph and 1 shipping leg rated at 60,000 bph.  The facility will be equipped with the Smart Truck RFID card system so drivers will never have to get out of their trucks.  We will have an inbound and outbound scale and 2 unloading pits with employees to unload trucks.  We are currently contracting corn and soybeans for June/July delivery and New Crop delivery (Sept/Oct/Nov for Corn and Oct/Nov/Dec for Soybeans).

The MFA Rail Facility is a collaboration between the two independent agricultural cooperatives with similar roots, MFA Incorporated and MFA Oil company.
