Battle River Railway is committed to creating a viable alternative to the traditional grain handling industry. In the past, this meant helping farmers load producer cars and take control of the shipping of their board grains. Today this means something more. We are using our newly founded cooperative to capture as much value as possible for our members. The first step towards capturing as much value as possible for our members is our composite blending program.
With the generous support of the Rural Alberta Development Fund, BRR has designed and implemented a composite blending pilot project. This is the first of its kind in Alberta. Traditionally, when producers load cars, they are paid solely on the quality of grain that they ship. While great for loading grain locally and avoiding large elevation fees, this system leaves a lot of value on the table that could be captured if farmers were to combine their cars in the most efficient way. Composite blending coordinates this process, ensuring that maximum value is captured by our users.
Composite blending passes value back to our users through a number of channels:
Add all these benefits up, and you have a compelling reason to load producer cars with BRR!
