Gretna is one of out of 5 elevator facilities that Rangeland owns. Gretna is a fully manned facility that is located 5 miles east and ½ mile north of Phillipsburg.  Gretna’s location supervisor is Kevin Shaffer.


The first storage facility was the quonset built in 1957, with a 70 thousand bushel storage capability. The large concrete elevator was built in 1959, and is a 355 thousand bushel storage facility.  Next two steel buildings were built in 1960 with storage of 40 thousand bushels each.  In 1978, two more steel buildings were added, one has storage of 93 thousand and the other at 99.5 thousand.  New steel Chief bins were erected in the fall of 2002, and they have a 165 thousand capability.  That gives Gretna the total of 862.5 thousand bushels licensed storage capability.  We have since added a 2nd Cheif building at Gretna in the spring of 2009, it is the identical match to the existing bin.


Gretna will take in Hard Red Winter Wheat, Milo, Sunflowers, Corn and Oats. Gretna has the access to rail cars and truck shipments, this makes Gretna a valuable asset to Rangeland.


Gretna offers many different services which include an anhydrous storage of 120 tons, oil, bagged feed a seed cleaning plant, and is a Monsanto seed sales facility.
