Canadian Pacific 2021-2022 Elevator of the Year
Canadian Pacific has announced its winners for Elevator of the Year for the 2021-2022 crop year: Paterson Flagstaff (Outbound Grain – Canada), G3 Carmangay (Inbound Grain – Canada), and Elbow Lake Co-op Grain (U.S.). CP presents this award to grain elevators that achieve high volumes from a single loading point while consistently demonstrating efficient railcar loading and a strong commitment to safety. CP issued a special recognition to G3 Carmangay this year for handling significant amounts of inbound corn to feed livestock. It has an 8,500-foot HEP-train-capable loop track that opened in 2020, and in the last crop year was able to help meet surging demand for cattle feed in Western Canada. Elbow Lake Co-op Grain, located in Elbow Lake, Minn., also helped sustain cattle during the 2021-2022 drought by shipping almost 200,000 metric tonnes of corn to Canada. Elbow Lake Co-op Grain is a first-time winner. CP also recognized Parrish & Heimbecker Weyburn (Canada) and Wheaton Dumont Co-op Elevator Tenney (U.S.) as the runners-up for Elevator of the Year 2021-2022.
