Viterra announces intent to build grain elevator in Dalhart, Texas

Viterra has announced its intent to build a grain facility in Dalhart, Texas, enabling the company to strengthen its service to customers in West Texas. The new facility will include a state-of-the-art grain handling system and loop track served by Union Pacific Railroad’s 32,000-mile network.

“As local demand for grain increases, this investment will allow us to market and move product more efficiently to customers in the West Texas area,” stated Rayner Freyberg, CEO US & Mexico for Viterra. “As we’ve shown with our previous investments in the area, Viterra is committed to serving its growers and customers and finding solutions in an ever-changing landscape.”

With its loop track served by the Union Pacific Railroad, the facility in Dalhart is expected to provide greater market access for producers and end users throughout Viterra’s supply chain.

“Union Pacific appreciates and values the relationship we have with Viterra to provide safe and reliable service to this growing agricultural market for years to come,” said Jason Hess, Senior Vice President – Marketing and Sales, Union Pacific Railroad. “We innovate for growth just like this, investing more than $10 million per day in infrastructure, technology and network expansion to provide solutions for our customers to win in the marketplace.”

Anticipated to be complete in mid-2025, Viterra expects this new build to bring substantial benefits to Dalhart and the surrounding area, fostering economic growth and creating employment opportunities.
