THE FARMERS' elevator movement in Minnesota started about 1890.
The number of elevator associations in which farmers owned at least
50 per cent of the stock had grown to 270 by 1914. In that year the total
membership was 34,500, an average of 128 members per association. For
the fiscal year 1912-13, $22,000,000 worth of grain was marketed and
$2,000,000 of supplies purchased for members. The grain marketed
through these associations constituted 30 per cent of the grain marketed
by Minnesota farmers.
