The Port of Blencoe is officially open for business!
On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, NEW Cooperative held a Ribbon Cutting Event at the Port of Blencoe with guest speakers Governor Kim Reynolds and Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Naig.
Located half-way between Council Bluffs and Sioux City, Iowa on the Missouri River, The Port of Blencoe will serve as a gateway to world markets. This port is the farthest stop north on the Missouri River and will shift high-volume freight from the road to the waterway.
Barges began transporting grain and fertilizer to and from the port in early spring of 2021. With the addition of this grain outlet our growers in Western Iowa will get the first opportunity at the world market.
