Just north of Richard, en route to Maymont on highway 376, one can see a large grain terminal being constructed. This adds another dimension to the prairie landscape as it is very tall. This project is being spearheaded by Grains Connect and is one of four terminals being built. This company is a 50-50 joint venture between Grains Corp of Australia and Zen-Noh Grain Corporation which is controlled by Japan. Apparently it will take two years before it is fully operational.
