Representatives from South Dakota Wheat Growers Elevator, including board president Hal Clemensen and CEO Dale Locken spoke at several community meetings held across Lyman County last Tuesday to explain the company’s intent to build a grain shuttle facility in the county.
Clemensen clarified with attendees that a building site had not yet been selected.
