ALCIVIA Breaks Ground on New Hager City Facility

COTTAGE GROVE, WI – ALCIVIA’s Board of Directors broke ground on the new state-of-the-art rail loading grain terminal in Hager City, WI on April 4. In attendance were key vendors and partners for the project and members of ALCIVIA’s leadership team. 

The new facility will be built on 40 acres and has over 21,000 linear feet of Class I BNSF track. The facility will bring grain terminal assets to producers in west central Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota.

Features of the new grain facility include upright grain storage space for 3.9 million bushels serviced by two 4,700-bushel per hour grain dryers and three 1,500-bushel capacity dump pits that will move grain at a combined handling speed of 60,000 bushels per hour. 

Once built, ALCIVIA will have three shuttle loading facilities on three different Class I railroads (BNSF, UP, CPKC), access to the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, and logistics to domestic corn ethanol plants and soybean crush plants. This positions ALCIVIA with highly desirable domestic and export market access and arbitrage.

“This project will give us a lot of flexibility for our members, our customers, and our trade territory. We are really looking forward to working with the railroad and the community to build this site into something special,” stated Jim Dell, ALCIVIA CEO and President.

The estimated project completion date is March 2025. Visit ALCIVIA.com/HagerCity for more information and updates or to view a livestream of the site.
