Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cargill Grain Elevator (Oakner, Municipality of Hamiota)

A wooden grain elevator in Oakner, in the Municipality of Hamiota on the Canadian National Railway, was constructed in 1978. Operated by Cargill Grain, the 14,000-tonne facility consists of three steel bins, three 130-foot concrete silos, bulk fertilizer storage, liquid storage tanks, chemical shed, and an office building. The wooden elevator portion of the complex was demolished in February 2018.
