The town of Boissevain, Manitoba has three wooden grain elevators in the town – originally built by Paterson, UGG and the Manitoba Pool – and a concrete elevator just outside town.
The wooden N.M. Paterson grain elevator in Boissevain is still in use by Paterson for grain storage. It has a capacity of 3,000 tonnes.
Ex Manitoba Pool “A”
The former Manitoba Pool “A” grain elevator features an impressive mural. This mural features a Pool logo, a depiction of the interior workings of a grain elevator, and farmers and railroad tracks transporting grain to and from the elevator. It is one of the many murals in the town as part of their Outdoor Gallery.
The elevator was built around 1928 and served the Pool for about 70 years until its closure by the Pool. It has a capacity of 3,710 tonnes and was acquired by Paterson around 2003.
The grain elevator along Mill Road in Boissevain was built and operated by UGG. It was built in about 1968 and operated until about 1985. It is privately owned.
Viterra operates a concrete grain elevator just outside Boissevain. This large structure has a capacity of 42,150 tonnes. It was originally built by AgPro Grain around 2000 with a capacity of 39,500 tonnes. It was then owned by Manitoba Pool until its merger to become Viterra.
