(Midvale, Wyo.) – It was bright and early when the first trucks loaded with sugar beets began arriving at Wyoming Sugar Company’s two local receiving stations, at Midvale and at the Riverton station midway between Riverton and Shoshoni. Some farmers began pulling their crop on Wednesday to have full truckloads when the receiving stations opened.
