Help to locate empty grain storage facilities in Manitoba

Mar. 18, 2014 - To help farmers identify available grain storage locations across the province, the Manitoba government is developing a grain storage listing service.

In a news release, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (MAFRD) minister Ron Kostyshyn said the service will be up and running by the end of the week, and accessible at

The grain storage listing service will work similar to the province's current online hay listing service. If producers have available storage that could be used in the event flooding becomes a risk, they are encouraged to contact their local GO office.

MAFRD is also working on completing a review of flood-prone areas and will be contacting farmers as a precaution to ensure grain from those areas can be moved if required. The minister also noted road restrictions will be eased this spring so at-risk grain can be transported.
