“This buyout enables CVA to provide more strategic focus on specialty crops for our customers,” said Matt Ashton, senior vice-president of grain at CVA. “We continue to look for ways of bringing value to our customers, and we view PAP in Bradshaw as a strategic asset for our specialty crop programs. Additionally, PAP members will now be eligible for patronage from CVA, adding even more value for them as a result of this change.”
The facility is able to ship grain by both truck and shuttle trains and has enough rail capacity to ship 110 car shuttle trains.
PAP was a joint venture, formed in September 2002 between CVA and Cargill, offering the buying, selling and storage of grain from producers in the Bradshaw, Nebraska, U.S., area.
According to Sosland Publishing’s 2018 Grain & Milling Annual Central Valley Ag ranks 41st in North American grain storage capacity with 44 million bushels and has 22 grain storage facilities.
