The new "ground ring" built by Covington, La.-based Consolidated Grain & Barge at Semo Port is a facility for the temporary storage of grain. Dan Overbey, director of the Semo Port, said he believes the new storage facility will strengthen the port's ability to serve the region. "This new facility will help CGB as a competitor in the region's grain markets and, ultimately, the strong competitive market among grain companies helps area farmers," Overbey said. "We are pleased to have the new facility and additional investment at Semo Port."
