General Information

VOM Information 

Due to weather conditions, we are seeing some scab and VOM in this years wheat harvest.  Wheat we find a high amount of scab in, we will be sending in for VOM testing.  We will be running a composite sample per customer per day of all loads with damage.  There is no discount up to 2.0 ppm (parts per million).  We will try to be as fair as possible but there will be discounts above 2.0 ppm.  Please call if you think or know you have scab and we can help make a plan to market it and minimize your discounts.
