IMPROVEMENTS FOR FALL 2015
At the Lowpoint facility we have added a 90’ diameter corn tank with a capacity of 543,000 bushels. This new space will reduce the need to shuttle corn away during harvest.
The Gridley facility will have a new 78’ diameter tank uptown with a capacity of 393,000 bushels.
At the Garfield facility we have added a 15,000 bph grain leg and dump pit to boost the dumping capacity during harvest. This should help to reduce the congestion during the peak of the harvest season.
In Blackstone we are building a new 70’ scale and a new office on the northwest side of our property. We have re-routed the traffic flow to make it easier to get trucks on and off of the scale.
NEW CROP CORN AND SOYBEANS ON PRICE LATER
You can save 2 cents per bushel on corn and 4 cents per bushel on soybeans by moving your new crop grain to a Price Later contract. You will be charged a minimum fee of 16 cents/bu. instead of the 18 cents/bu. minimum charge for corn and 20 cents/bu. minimum charge for beans in Open Storage. Please notify us before you start hauling in if you want to place your grain on Price Later.
FALL HAULING SERVICES
We will be offering our fall trucking services this season at a rate of 10 cents per bushel on grain hauled into the closest of our facilities. If you require delivery to the RuffRail facility, you will be charged the applicable mileage rate. We ask that you have an auger wagon or another method for loading the trucks quickly. As usual, we will schedule jobs only as the trucks become available. If trucks are not available you will have to wait until they become available. If you are interested in using this service, please give us as much notice as possible before you are ready to haul.
OLD CROP STORAGE AND PRICE LATER POLICY
Soybeans: The carryover charge of 10 cents/bu. and a new minimum charge of 20 cents/bu. until January 15, 2016 and 3.3 cents/bu. per month thereafter will be charged on old crop soybeans in Open Storage or on Warehouse Receipt on September 10, 2015 . Price Later soybeans will only be assessed the monthly fee of 3.3 cents/bu. until the beans are sold.
Corn: The carryover charge of 10 cents/bu. and a new minimum charge of 18 cents/bu. until January 15, 2016 and 3 cents/bu. per month thereafter will be charged on old crop corn in Open Storage or on Warehouse Receipt on September 10, 2015. Price Later corn will be charged a carryover fee of 10 cents/bu. on September 10, 2015 and the monthly fee of 3 cents/bu. will continue until the corn is sold.
