LANSFORD – CHS SunPrairie’s 83 terminal near Lansford is scheduled to be operational in mid-June.

“We are excited to see this project become a reality for the growers in our region,” said Eric Moberg, CHS SunPrairie board chairman.

“Once operational, we will have three shuttle loading facilities strategically placed within our geography. Our ultimate goal is to provide the best service and returns to our patrons and this addition to our assets will do that for a very long time,” Moberg said.

He said they are also in discussions with their cooperative neighbor in that area to enhance the efficiency of the other terminals close by.

The CHS SunPrairie 83 terminal will be called the Wiley Terminal. Jayme Burkhart, marketing director for Dakota Agronomy, CHS SunPrairie and Enerbase, said there used to be a short spur track for three or four rail cars in the 1970s and early 1980s to deliver supplies to oil-field workers working in the Wiley Field, an area oil field.
