The North Dakota Grain Dealers Association will be sponsoring a grain grading school in March. The school will be conducted in a very practical manner, using actual samples of various grain damages encountered at elevators. The instructors are licensed grain inspectors provided by Grain Inspection, Inc.
Proper use of grain grading equipment will be demonstrated and the focus will be on soybeans, corn, wheat and durum. Attendees will also work with identification of odors in grain, a problem becoming more prevalent as more grain continues to be stored in temporary structures.
Cost for the event is $90 per person for NDGDA members and $120 per person for non-members. The cost includes training materials, training personnel time and lunch. Each participant will receive a participation certificate. The school is limited to 55 participants and early registration is encouraged.
