It's been about two years so I have decided to audit the list again. Plus, I am also creating an interactive Google Map of the HESR with all of the customers.

Here's what I have:

Possibly inactive customers I have questions about:
Cooperative Elevator Fertilizer - Bad Axe
Tri-State Forest Products - Buena Vista
Cooperative Elevator - Deckerville
Farmers Co-Op Grain - Elkton
ADM Edible Bean - Fairgrove
Midwestern BioAg - Kinde
Central Warehouse - Saginaw
M.A.C. Sand Sales - Vassar
Central Warehouse has been closed for years. Tri State Forest Products still gets service, although I'm not sure how often.

I live in bad axe near tracks and can confirm the co op does get infrequent rail service. I pass it everyday on my way to work and in the past year I would say there may have been about ten times I have seen hoppers,usually 1 or 2, at the plant.

First car I've seen in several months at the bad axe co-op location

Interesting that Michigan Sugar has coop owners in Ontario.
I guess I never considered that a coop would cross the international border.
Also didn't know that desugarization is a word.
