All corn must pass mill quality standards to be accepted. Quality standards for corn are as follows: grain test weight must be 53 pounds or higher, black light test must be clear, grain should be clean and odor free, and grain needs to pass visual inspection. In addition any corn brought in with a moisture level over 15.5% will require drying. There is a charge for drying.
If you are unsure of the quality of your grain, bring a representative sample to the mill for testing.
Our mills are located at the Bedford and Curryville Locations. The two mills have a combined capacity to store:
Our mill technicians are all experienced individuals who work hard to supply high quality feeds and grains for our customers.
There is a $.04 per bushel storage fee each month for the storage of oats, barley, corn, and soybeans. This charge is calculated on ending inventory on the last day of each month for each grain banked with the Co-op. The storage fee will be handled by the Co-op deducting the appropriate amount of pounds from each grain at fair market value for each grain to offset the storage charge.. If stored grain is sold outside of the Co-op there is a $.10 per bushel load-out charge.

Normal receiving and drying charges still apply. All receiving standards and requirements apply. Farm Bureau Co-op reserves the right to reject all loads not meeting our requirements and to limit the amount received from any customer for storage.
