There are few grain elevators remaining that bear the blue UGG logo. The McCreary grain elevator is one of those few. This elevator towers above the town of McCreary, Manitoba and still proudly shows the logo and the blue roofs of the UGG.

This grain elevator has a capacity of 3,940 tonnes and was last listed in the Canadian Grain Commission’s list of active elevators in 2001. It is not clear whether this elevator is still used for private grain storage.

The elevator is beside an active rail line, the CN Gladstone subdivision, and the former CN station is preserved on the other side of the tracks as a museum.
