CCEDC realizes the importance of the agriculture industry in Chippewa County and attended the Agribusiness Tour hosted by River Country Cooperative and the Wisconsin Agri-Business Association.
During the event River Country Cooperative staff educated attendees on the agribusiness industry and provided tours of their Bloomer Grain facility. This “state of the art” grain drying, storage and commodity location is one of the largest storage bins in Western Wisconsin. With the capacity of a 730,000 bushel grain storage bin, a 4,700 bushel per hour dryer and two 75,000 bushel wet bins with a 145 foot tower which allows it to be the fastest unloading system in the market area. This construction of Bloomer Grain was built to serve the needs of area farmers for the shortage of grain storage in Western Wisconsin. This educational and networking event was held on October 5 at the River Country Cooperative in Bloomer, WI.
