Friday April 9, 2021
It is a little overcast this morning at the elevator. A nice warm rain might be in store later today which is much needed. April showers bring May flowers!! Yesterday some guys were out planting some spring crops, fertilizing some wheat and working some dry ground. Our tanker is keeping busy and grain trucks are on the road.
Overnight trading is up slightly.
Prices are stable after the big jump last week. The monthly USDA supply-demand report is published at noon tomorrow. In the US the first corn is going in the ground while South America is harvesting the first soybeans. Let's see what tomorrow's report will bring.
While preparations and planning for the new crop year are in progressing, it is not too late to put some solid harvest contracts on the books. We recommend small contracts over a longer period of time to secure a healthy average and cover input costs. Check prices daily.
Call anytime for marketing advice or if you have questions.
Have a great weekend!
2021 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: firstname.lastname@example.org and text: (905) 252-2442
