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.
