The Moulamein Grain Co-Operative Ltd was established in August 2001 and was fully operational 3 months later receiving grain as a bulk handler.
The Co-Op was formed by 26 local progressive farmers, all who were concerned about grain storage in the Moulamein area. The first harvest was a total success receiving approximately 30,000 tonnes of Wheat and Barley.
The creation of the site lead to a more productive harvest for the local community and as a result of greater competition for the grain, the floor price was lifted by an average $20 per tonne.
Today the Co-op has grown to 42 members and operates and additional site at Burraboi with a storage capacity in excess of 100,000 tonnes – our largest receivals year being 2010 with 70,000 tonnes taken. MGC provides a reliable, safe and secure co-operative grain storage facility to our members and other local farmers.
