October Grain Update

Harvest

October Update.

Harvest is here. As we are in another busy season, I will keep this short with a few policies and reminders. First, please ensure accuracy at the scale by having drivers check tickets for the correct customer name and disposition of the ticket. If sold at the scale, it will be marked with “Cash” and a price in the top right corner of the ticket. If being applied to a contract or stored, it will be marked with “ETD”, which means Extended Time to Decide. Extended Time to Decide allows you 7 days to choose what to do with your grain. Second, you have the option to defer payment until January 2022, but please let us know this before hauling. Third, all trucks or wagons used to haul treated seed should be completely cleaned out. One kernel can lead to problems for both parties. Last, please drive slowly and be safe around our grain plants. With extra people and vehicles moving around our facilities, additional caution goes a long way. Happy Harvest!

I hope you get the chance to get outside in November. By the time I write the next newsletter, we could see below zero temperatures. Or it could be 70 degrees outside. You just never know. You gotta love Wisconsin. If you don’t like the weather, wait a day.

Temperature fluctuations during winter tend to present challenges for calf raisers across the Midwest and many farms will see an uptick in respiratory issues. More calves are being raised in barns or other housing with greater protection from the elements and these structures rely on natural ventilation to provide clean, fresh air to the calves. This works well in the summertime; however, as doors, windows and curtains are closed in the winter, providing sufficient air exchanges to keep calves healthy can be challenging.
