I am writing this on Friday, Dec 2nd. All the beans that were piled outside and under the bunker tent will be picked up by the end of the day. It was a struggle this year to get the beans shipped to the processors without moisture discounts. We took in a tremendous amount of beans that were over 13% this year. When delivered to the processors if they test over 13% we end up taking a significant discount usually around 15 cents per bushel. The processors policy is that every load stands on its own the averaging that we allow for you does not apply for us at the processors. This is a huge sevice we provide to allow you to start combining when beans are over 13% and average with dryer beans later.
We will start picking up the outside corn pile on Dec 6th. I hope the ground is frozen enough for the trucks to get around. If the weather allows us, I would antisipate the corn pile to be picked up the week of Dec 19th.
