A chill is in the air this morning. Luckily the wind has dyed down and driving conditions are much better again. A few loads are leaving the yard today. It's a good day for some maintenace work and staying in the heated shop.
Markets are mixed overnight.
China's demand for US grain is slowing down. Experts warn: grain futures are vurnable after recent rallies. Discussions and predictions on the seeded acreage mix are in full swing. Finding it difficult to make sales decisions in this volatile market? Managing risk is necessary during times like this, understanding your costs and setting sales targets are ways to reduce your risk. We recommend small contracts over a longer period of time to secure a healthy average and cover input costs. Check prices daily.

2020 Harvest Delivery Procedures
As we approach harvest, we want you to know that our harvest delivery procedures have changed slightly this year. We continue to practice social and physical distancing, wearing masks, proper handwashing and sanitizing to eliminate the spread of COVID-19.
The scale house will be closed to farmers and carriers during harvest.
The following is what to expect when you bring a load to the elevator:
Upon arrival, remain in your vehicle to be weighed in. Communicate via cell phone to declare ownership and type of grain delivered.
Remain in your vehicle at all times. If you need to leave your vehicle when you are dumping please wear a mask and practice social and physical distancing.
Once your vehicle is unloaded, return to the scale, and remain on the scale in marked area to be weighed out.
Scale tickets can be picked up outside the scale house or delivered to your vehicle by staff.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. We are happy to accommodate a "non-contact delivery" if you wish. Please notify the office in advance about the ownership and type of grain you are delivering.
Checking Samples in Advance As always, we are more than happy to test your samples before harvest for moisture and grade. Please contact the office upon arrival and let our staff know you have a sample to be tested. An outside table will be set up with pails for you to transfer your sample into and our staff will test the sample as requested. Remain in your vehicle and a staff member will bring out the results.
Due to the current situation we might not always be in the office but we are available via phone: (905) 939-7494 email: email@example.com and text: (905) 252-2442
