WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Cargill Limited announced on Feb. 13 the closure of its Langbank, Saskatchewan, Canada, crop input facility. The company will cease production at the aging facility, which Cargill said no longer serves to most effectively meet the needs of the company and its customers. This closure is effective Feb. 15.

“Cargill is committed to operating safe, efficient and cost-effective networks of farm service centers across Canada,” said Sheldon Spearman, Cargill Farm Service group manager.  “While the Langbank facility no longer meets our current needs, we will continue to offer our valued customers the exceptional direct-to-farm service approach that they have come to expect from Cargill. Our customers will not be impacted by this change.”

Cargill will continue to work with customers through its neighboring facilities, such as Balcarres and Yorkton, Saskatchewan, and Elva and Oakner, Manitoba, as well as utilizing alternate direct-to-farm service solutions.

In addition, Cargill will continue to serve customers through its grain marketing and farm management services.
