History Corner - Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator

The only operating grain elevator that remains within the city limits is the former Saskatchewan Wheat Pool terminal off York Road on Hill Street, which has been VITERRA since 2007. The facility was erected in 1972, with a crib annex in 1980, and steel annexes in 1994. It was one of the former company’s last few remaining wooden structures still in operation in the province. Saskatchewan Wheat Pool was taken over by the Winnipeg based Agricore United in 2007 and the name was changed to VITERRA. This edition of History Corner originally was published in the Sept. 8, 2010 issue of Yorkton This Week.
