A 60,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Meadows, on the CPR Carberry Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, was built in 1947 by the Paterson Grain Company. Temporary balloon annexes were built beside it in 1953 and 1960 and were replaced in 1978 by a crib annex, increasing the elevator’s capacity to 188,600 bushels. Closed in 2013, the facility was demolished in July 2017.
