In the late 1990s they decided to build a 1.7 million bushel flat storage ground pile east of Waverly. Finished it in 2000. In 2003 the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad was looking for corn to be shipped to TX. Jay offered to build a facility on the railroad. The railroad was offering economic incentive money for those who would build facilities. The first one was built in Branson, north of Kankakee. The second in Mendota, third one in Toluca, then the Waverly one, then one in Galva. They had to lay their own tracks, switches, and spur.
