Farmers in Manitoba have one less grain elevator to do business at.

Parrish & Heimbecker (P&H) sent emails to producers indicating that as of Jan. 31, 2024, its grain elevator in Strathclair (Glossop), Man., would permanently close.

Producers will still be able to access the crop inputs business operating out of the same location.

Andrew Dalgarno, a farmer from Newdale, Man., posted a photo of P&H’s letter on X on Jan. 11. The email identifies other grain elevators farmers can use.

“To continue serving your grain requirements, we have strategically identified alternative locations in Gladstone, Dutton (Gilbert Plaints), and Virden,” the letter says. “These locations will now handle all grain contracts and deliveries, providing you with uninterrupted service and support.”

Each of those locations is within two hours of the Glossop elevator.

The large steel elevator in Strathclair was built as a Pioneer elevator in 1994. At the time, the elevator was the company’s first high-throughput elevator.

It now has a capacity of 22,000 tonnes and can handle 11,000 bushels per hour. It can also store 1,600 tonnes of fertilizer, Grain Elevators of Canada says.

P&H purchased the elevator from James Richardson International in 2007.
