The town of Milk River, Alberta has three grain elevators – two ex Parrish and Heimbecker elevators and an ex Alberta Wheat Pool / Agricore elevator.

In March 2019, work began to dismantle all three elevators.

The Parrish and Heimbecker elevators no longer handle grain, but the office still has a staff serving the area and there are chemical sheds on site in use.
