Closed Graincorp sites for hire or sale

Graincorp has invited expressions of interest from the farming community to lease or buy closed sites.

The invitation comes in the wake of Graincorp's announcement in early June that it was closing numerous minor sites across the region.

Site closures coincide with Graincorp's "Project Regeneration" - a plan to spend $200 million upgrading existing major sites.

Victorian Farmers Federation Grains Group president Brett Hosking said some farmers had already showed interest in minor sites.

Mr Hosking said some farmers would use the sites for storage and handling of their own grain.

But he said grain growers wouldn't necessarily be the only ones interested and that sites might also be of interest to stockfeed operators.

He said some would be keen to buy and others would rent. 

He said the preferred model would be for several growers to share a site between them. "They're geared towards a co-operative type arrangement," he said.

He said there was a lot of opportunity for growers. "It comes down to an individual grower and what they’re hoping to achieve with their business," he said.

Sites to be closed include those at Borung, Birchip, St Arnaud, Echuca, Swan Hill and Watchem.

Expressions of interest can be registered at graincorp.com.au/regeneration
