The final touches have been put on and the elevator hosted an open house on Aug. 8 for area farmers to tour the facility and see what the county&apos;s newest elevator has to offer. Construction began in May of 2012 and the first train was loaded out in January of 2013. Last harvest they were able to take in product using ground piles. This harvest will be the first with the elevator in full op- eration. At this point, Opera- tions Superintendant Joe Gul- lickson said, they are just trying to make the place their own. Walsh Grain Terminal is a joint venture that is 50 percent ADM-Benson Quinn and 50 percent Walsh Grain, comprised of Hoople Farmers' Grain Com- pany, Grafton Farmers' Coop Grain Company, Edinburg Farmers' Elevator Company and Nash Grain and Trading gether with a lot ofcommunity support from Park River and the surrounding area. The final piece of the puzzle is being put into place with the construction of the road from Highway 17 to the grain terminal.
