--LUDLOW COOP - LAHOGUE FACILITY --
Lahogue facility will begin construction on a new receiving pit and leg, starting July 13th. This leg will enable us to dump beans much faster than the facility currently can handle. During this construction the facility will not be able to receive grain. If you have grain to deliver to Lahogue please be prepared to work around this closure. It could approximately take 30 days to complete this project.
Thank you for your patience with this project.
