On a recent rainy morning at the grain elevator in Byron, it was obvious the facility was up and running. Three big grain trucks pulled onto the scale to load or unload their grains and then go on their way within the 30-minute time frame of the interview.

New owner Doug Gilbertson explained that the Byron Agri-Center is open seven days a week during the harvest season and right now Doug's son, Aaron Gilbertson is running the operations for the facility. Doug explained that the company will be hiring a local manager.

The Byron facility is now part of the Nerstrand Agri-Center which has elevators in Byron, Cannon Falls, Farmington, Randolph and Nerstrand.

"The company offers grain marketing programs to help farmers with their forward contracts like futures, hedging, and basis contracting," said Doug.

And, the company offers grain storage, drying, delivery, on-the-farm-pickup and will serve as a grain bank.

Products available include dry fertilizer, liquid fertilizers, crop protection products, Pioneer Brand Seed, forage seed mixes, feed products for beef, dairy, swine, sheep, horses, poultry, goats, rabbits, deer/elk and alpaca.

"We are also a Big Gain, ADM, and Form-a-Feed feed dealer," explained Doug.

"We're glad to bring the elevator back to individual ownership," he said. "When the ethanol boom hit this area, the grain flow changed. The new market is in this 40-mile radius of Byron. It's not the river or the railroad that transports anymore. The demand for our services and products is good here and we can compete against the grain giants."

Customers can call 1-800-944-2297 for more information or to order products or services. The company's website is nerstrandag.com.
