A 34,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Rosser, on the CPR Carberry Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, was constructed in 1935 by Ogilvie Flour Mills. Three annexes were built beside it in 1950, increasing its total capacity to 64,000 bushels. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1959, it was closed on 31 July 1971 and later demolished.
