July 18, 2013
OMAHA, NE (July 16, 2013) – The Scoular Company is pleased to announce the opening of a new grain origination and trading office in Rushville, Neb. Hay Springs, Neb. natives Paul Yekel and Justin Anderson along with Kylee Hinn are staffing the new office, buying grain from farmers in northwest Nebraska and southwest South Dakota to supply Scoular grain-handling and cross country trading programs.
“Our new office allows us to expand on our long history of serving Nebraska farmers–a history that dates back to 1892 when Scoular was founded in Superior, Neb.,” says Mark Mossman, Director of Scoular’s Nebraska operations. “While we’ve bought grain in this area before, we haven’t had a physical, on-the-ground presence here. We’re thrilled that Paul, Justin, and Kylee can live and work alongside our customers, both farmers and end users, to provide a reliable, competitive market for grain.”
In Nebraska, Scoular operates 17 grain-handling facilities throughout the state and a corporate office in Omaha. In total, the company has more than 75 offices and facilities, including locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Yekel and Anderson have spent the entirety of their careers working in western Nebraska. Yekel farmed and ranched for 30 years in the Nebraska panhandle before entering the grain business in 2002, while Anderson began his career selling farm equipment and spent the last six years in the grain industry. Hinn grew up in northeastern Nebraska and earned agricultural degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Kansas State University. Her career has been in the grain industry, working for two grain companies as well as the Nebraska Corn Growers Association.
