Looks like a nice clean crop. Congratulations.

It was hard taking the last of the cows to their new home, good thing I was alone in the truck.

There are plenty of people, normally well educated 20-40 year old females, that are convinced you mistreat your cows and nothing will convince them otherwise.

Just perusing the grain reports from Camgrain.

Propino Barley did fairly well, moisture @ 13%, so no drying charges. Specific weight @ 66, nitrogen @ 1.6%, 100% germination, and no ergot present. Not bad.

Solstice wheat showed moisture at @ 13%, which meant I got some dry grain credits. Specific weight @ 76, protein over 13%, Hagberg well over 300, three loads with a trace of ergot, but the majority clean. All in all fairly pleasing considering the year.

Now just have to wait to see how much it will all make!!!

Dry grain credits ?

So if the moisture comes in below a certain amount it can offset some other that is wet ?

Here they don't even say thank-you, just blend it with someone else's that is wet and dock him.

And, they would have charged him for drying.

That's just one of the benefits of Camgrain, Mac. Farmer owned, farmer run.

Camgrain have the ability to take say, 100 tonnes at 14% and 100 tonnes at 16% to batch 200 tonnes at an average of 15% all out of the same shed.
It's quite impressive to see.

Our buyers do also, this is common for them. They just don't do the credit thing. Same for FM, TW and moisture. They even charge for drying when all they do is blend.

Oh, and it's a cooperative.

The Camgrain thing is impressive because of the set-up of their shed, they have sections all over the shed and know what's where so they can pull a bit from here and some from way over there and know who's it was and what it came in at without having to bring it out first like many others do.

Actually adding to that, a few years ago, we had a spot of bother grain wise. I thought, I don't know why, that fengrain might have some solutions. What a bunch of crooks :twisted:
