Major Grain Expansion at Bode Location

Major Grain Expansion at Bode Location

Construction Expected to Begin Spring 2020

 

Fort Dodge, IA – The Board of Directors and Management of NEW Cooperative are pleased to announce the expansion of our Bode Location. The major expansion will include a new 750,000 – bushel grain storage and a new scale over the receiving pit, which will allow 20,000 bushel per hour in receiving.

This addition will certainly be a dramatic improvement for producers delivering into the Bode Location. This project will allow farmers coming from the south to continue to weigh and dump grain south of the tracks. Those coming from the north will scale and dump on the north side of the tracks. This expansion will allow Bode to handle grain more efficiently and get our farmers back to the field faster.

Attend an informative workshop in Lake City on cover crops, edge-of-field practices

The North Raccoon Farm to River Partnership project is hosting a workshop to inform farmers and landowners about the benefits of conservation practices including cover crops, bioreactors and saturated buffers. The event will review how these practices can be added with 100 percent paid installation.

The free workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lake City Community Center, 118 E. Washington Street.

Using cover crops in a corn-soybean rotation can reduce soil erosion and nitrate in waterbodies as well as improve soil organic matter, water infiltration and weed suppression. Steve Killpack, a southwest Iowa farmer and long-time cover crop user, will share how he successfully incorporated cover crops into his crop production system. Scott Nelson, director of agronomy at Iowa Soybean Association (ISA), will discuss the agronomic and environmental benefits of using cover crops.

Edge-of-field conservation practices, such as bioreactors and saturated buffers, remove nitrate from tile-drained water before it enters a river or stream. Chris Hay, ISA senior manager of production systems innovation, is an expert on conservation drainage and will share how these practices work, their environmental benefits, and where they should be installed for optimum performance.

Jeff Sporrer, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Carroll County District Conservationist, will review opportunities and programs available for cover crops and edge-of-field practices.

Chance McDonald, Farm to River Partnership conservation agronomist, will host the workshop. He will provide an overview of the project’s goals and how farmers and landowners can participate.

The workshop is open to the public and is free to attend, lunch is included. Registration is recommended. RSVP to Sue Derscheid, via email: sderscheid@iasoybeans.com or phone: 515-334-1063 by Jan. 17.
