Ag Groups Talk Rail Delays With ND Regulators

Ag Groups Talk Rail Delays With ND Regulators

Railroad officials assured North Dakota regulators that oil shipments are not displacing grain shipments in the Dakotas and surrounding states.

North Dakota's Public Service Commission met in Bismarck with representatives from agriculture and transportation groups on Monday to talk about disruptions in rail service for moving grain.

Increased crude oil and freight shipments largely have been blamed for causing the rail delays. Officials from BNSF Railway Co. and Canadian Pacific told regulators that a brutal winter and congestion in Chicago has caused the backlog.

North Dakota Grain Growers Association executive director Dan Wogsland says bins across the region are full and grain from prior years' crops is being stored on the ground.

The railroads say they expect to get caught up with shipments this summer.
