Request for proposal

As mentioned in a press release from Grain Farmers of Ontario last week, Grain Farmers of Ontario is prepared to purchase grain baggers to assist in short term storage of corn for farmer-members. 

Grain Farmers of Ontario feels these baggers will work best if they are situated beside a commercial elevator that has the capacity for weighing, drying, and storing these grain bags on property in close proximity.

Therefore, Grain Farmers of Ontario is seeking out interested grain companies or independent grain operators to cooperate in what Grain Farmers of Ontario considers a pilot project on the storage of this year’s corn crop. As harvest continues in Ontario, our organization is looking for a response by the end of the work day Wednesday, November 21, 2018.

For more information or to indicate your interest, please contact Barry Senft, CEO, Grain Farmers of Ontario, at bsenft@gfo.ca or 519-831-0194.

Grain Farmers of Ontario is the province’s largest commodity organization, representing Ontario’s 28,000 barley, corn, oat, soybean and wheat farmers. The crops they grow cover 6 million acres of farm land across the province, generate over $2.5 billion in farm gate receipts, result in over $9 billion in economic output and are responsible for over 40,000 jobs in the province.
