THE FEASIBILITY OF A RIVER PORT GRAIN ELEVATOR AT SAVANNA, ILLINOIS

The feasibility study of a proposed grain elevator focuses on an 11-county area covering parts of the Mississippi Valley located in northwest Illinois, northeast Iowa, and southwest Wisconsin. Projected estimates of production and exportable surpluses of corn, oats, and soybeans are used involving grain movements based on primary and secondary data from county elevators and trucker-dealers. Yearly grain flow to the proposed million bushel terminal model is estimated at 11 to 14 million bushels by the end of 1980 yielding variable investment returns. Estimated yields are 9, 11, and 14 million bushels, respectively.
