The Westroc grain elevator is owned by Delmar Commodities. This grain elevator is just northwest of Westbourne, Manitoba and has a capacity of 4,460 tonnes. It is a former Manitoba Pool grain elevator, built in or around 1982.
There are two grain elevators in Newdale, Manitoba. The first Newdale grain elevator is owned by Delmar Commodities, and is the former Manitoba Pool “C” elevator. This elevator has a capacity of 2,750 tonnes.
The second remaining Newdale grain elevator is an ex UGG grain elevator.
Note that it is a larger elevator with a small elevator beside it, which was used as an annex. The smaller elevator was built in 1925. The larger elevator was built in 1983.
This elevator has a capacity of 4,700 tonnes. It is not clear whether this elevator is used or not.
The Somerset grain elevator is a combination of two grain elevators. The shorter elevator was at Somerset already, but the taller elevator was originally at La Riviere, Manitoba.
The La Riviere elevator was moved the 20 miles between La Riviere and Somerset in November 2004 by Minty’s Moving. The elevator, annex, bins and office were moved separately (see photo from Minty’s Moving). The 160′ tall, 280 tonne grain elevator was moved in one piece. The entire process took eight days.
Somerset used to be served by CN, and then the Southern Manitoba Railway. However the rail was lifted in 2007 and since then the grain has had to be trucked. Delmar advertises that they can load sea containers and intermodals for shipping flexibility. The complex has a capacity of 9,320 tonnes. Prior to the addition of the La Riviere grain elevator and annex, the Somerset elevator had a capacity of 3,120 tonnes in 2004.
The Sperling grain elevator was a former Manitoba Pool elevator, built in 1926 and until recently operated by Delmar Commodities. It was last used in the fall of 2013. The elevator was on the CEMR Carman subdivision between Carman and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
According to the Sperling town web site and a UGG history document, the elevators that operated in Sperling were:
Canadian Elevator Company
Manitoba Pool, 1926
Canadian Consolidated – purchased by UGG in 1959, burned 1995
The grain elevator in Sperling was demolished in late March 2015 (news article).
The town of Sperling has never exceeded 200 people, and today it is primarily a residential town, with a few industries such as Sperling Industries and an auto body shop.
