October Grain Update

Oct 06, 2022


Bins

October is here, which means another grain harvest is starting. We will be a little later than last year, since last year we had considerable harvest activity in September in some of our growing area. However, I expect things will really get going these next two weeks. Best of luck to all! 

When hauling in grain, please be sure drivers know what to do with the grain so they can communicate that with Premier’s scale operators. You can sell your grain at the scale, or we allow 7 days to decide what to do with the grain, which is our “ETD” (Extended Time to Decide). Another important note is when deferring payment on grain, please notify us before the grain is hauled in. Last, please drive slowly and safely around our grain plants to keep everyone safe during this busy season. 

Need some help hauling your grain? Premier has trucks available through the season, please give your location a call to line it up. Have a safe harvest and we look forward to serving your grain needs this fall!

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.
