Agriculture.com Staff 08/14/2006 @ 7:40am

DeBruce Grain, Inc., has announced plans to upgrade and expand their Owensboro, Ky., grain operation. The upgraded facility will have a storage capacity of 935,000 bushels that will provide flexibility to handle yellow corn, white corn, soybeans, wheat and sorghum.

With this expansion, Kansas City, Mo.-based DeBruce Grain will add a Zimmerman dryer, two 55,000-bushel hoppered steel bins and a 275,000-bushel steel bin. These new tanks, coupled with the existing system, will be capable of a load-out rate in excess of 50,000 bushels per hour. Completion of this construction project is expected by Oct. 1, 2006.

"Our Owensboro facility has been a significant part of our network of facilities across the Midwest and the South since 2002," said Paul DeBruce, chief executive officer, DeBruce Grain, Inc. "We are confident the upgrades we are making to the plant will improve our ability to distribute high-quality grains."
