The town of Cut Knife, Saskatchewan hosts two grain elevators – a former Saskatchewan Wheat Pool wooden elevator and a former Cargill concrete elevator.
The former Pool elevator was the “A” elevator and features a central elevator with two annexes. One of the annexes has a POOL logo outline. It is not clear if the elevator is still in use.
The concrete elevator was built by Cargill in 1985.
The area includes the elevator, truck scale, office, seed plant and storage building. The seed cleaning facility includes one seed cleaning line. It is not currently in operation.
It was closed by Cargill at the end of 2007. Ilta Grain Inc. purchased the elevator from Parkland Pulse Grain N.B. Ltd. in January 2012. After Ilta Grain went into receivership, ETG Commodities purchased the elevator in November 2019.
The elevator is on a Canadian Pacific Railway line (the CP Lloydminster subdivision) and can handle approximately 25 rail cars and has a capacity of 5,352 tonnes.
Cut Knife is home to the world’s biggest tomahawk, constructed in 1971.
