SHERIDAN LAKE, Colo. (Oct. 8, 2020) – The Scoular Company on Thursday announced that it has reached an agreement with Crossroads Agriculture on a new grain receiving facility about 6 miles east of Sheridan Lake. The facility will be ready to unload producer trucks for fall harvest.
The facility, which Scoular will lease from Crossroads Agriculture, will have more than 1.6 million bushels of temporary storage capacity and can unload 20 trucks an hour through a high-speed conveyor.
“The Sheridan Lake site will be Scoular’s seventh in the region focused on providing producers fast harvest unloading and efficient market access,” said Phil Van Court, Regional Facility Manager for the Omaha, Neb.-based Scoular.
Scoular has had a presence in southwest Kansas and southeast Colorado since 2005, operating Coolidge and Tribune facilities in Kansas and a facility in Haswell, Colo. The new Sheridan Lake facility, located on the Colorado Pacific Railroad, will provide an additional marketing option to customers in the area. Scoular will lease and operate the space as part of its Coolidge business.
Crossroads Agriculture, founded by Stefan Soloviev in 1999, operates 400,000 acres of farm and ranch land in Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico and New York. Other holdings include the Colorado Pacific railroad, which runs west from the Kansas state line to the base of the Rocky Mountains near Pueblo, Colo.
The Sheridan Lake development illustrates Scoular’s ongoing commitment to farmers in southeast Colorado and southwest Kansas. “We’ve made significant investments to our facilities over the past 15 years. We hope to continue to be able to better serve our farmer customers,” Van Court said.
