There are two concrete grain elevators in Dauphin, Manitoba – one owned by Cargill and the other by Richardson Pioneer.
Richardson built a new grain elevator in Dauphin to replace a former Manitoba Pool elevator (“Dauphin A”) they purchased in 2007 and demolished in early 2015. The concrete pour started in October 2015 and the elevator was expected to complete by August 2016. The new elevator has a capacity of 25,000 tonnes and the ability to spot 104 cars.
Dauphin was an important station on the Canadian Northern Railway. As such it had a large collection of grain elevators, representing many line companies like the Lake of the Woods company.
In the latter half of the 20th century, Dauphin had a trio of Manitoba Pool grain elevators, a UGG grain elevator and a Cargill grain elevator.
The Agricore-United “C” grain elevator was demolished in June 2005 by Wilson Excavating.
There is a small farm grain elevator just outside Dauphin.
