The , late start, which was hampered by weather troubles and seeding de- lays, has left farmers waiting for their chance to start taking off the crops for the 2013 year. "It's going to be a long drug out harvest," Westby said, but they are ready for it. At-full capacity, the grain ter- minal holds 1.8 million bushels. The facility's bins reach 140-feet high arid 190-feet at the highest point of the elevator leg. The state of the art computer system allows elevator employees to control elements of the grain ter- minal's inner workings from the click of a mouse from three differ- ent locations and monitor the con- tents of each bin for both safety and quality control reasons. The truck drivers scan in and out with cards at the 110-foot en- closed scale and don't even have to get out of the truck ensuring speed and efficiency for farmers rushing to get their crop in the bin. Gullickson said that they, have the ability to move a truck from weighing-in to weighing-out in around six minutes. "Trucks can't unload fast enough," said Gullickson. "The biggest hold up is grading." By the numbers, the grain ter- minal is built for efficiency with the ability to load out 70,000 bushels an hour with a 9,000-foot loop track designed to load l l0- ,car shuttle trains. Gullickson said that their target time for loading out a train is eight hours. "Everything's made to go, go, Photo: Larry Biri Above: One of the Walsh Grain Terminal tours is silhouetted as they make there way along the tour site.
