Morris

There are two grain elevators in the town of Morris, Manitoba – one owned by Paterson and one by Cargill.

Paterson

N.M. Paterson has a modern high-efficiency elevator at the south end of the town. This concrete elevator has a number of bins and several tracks. This elevator had a capacity of 8,800 tonnes in 2000, expanded to 22,000 tonnes in 2002, 26,000 tonnes in 2004, and finally to its current capacity of 42,000 tonnes in 2009. This elevator is served by both CN and CP.

The other Morris grain elevator is the newly-expanded Cargill high-throughput elevator. Until recently there was an older wooden Cargill elevator there, but that was demolished during the expansion of the concrete elevator.
