Central Ag Services’ new grain dryer and 30,000 bushel bin in Eagle Bend were expected to be ready for service this Monday afternoon according to Manager Larry Dickinson. The new grain bin adds storage capacity, and the new dryer increases the company’s drying capacity with a quieter and faster-operating dryer. Dickinson said they needed the new dryer and bin because there are fewer animals to feed around here and more grain being raised.
The Eagle Bend Girl Scouts and members of the Wykeham Willing Workers 4-H Club combined forces to paint the new “Welcome to Eagle Bend” signs on the north and south ends of town along Highway 71. In the spring they will plant flowers around the signs to complete the project.
